South African Airways (SAA) is adding to its already extensive African flight schedule to offer customers more travel options on the continent.
The most recent change is an increase in the flights from Johannesburg–Lagos route, where the airline will offer eight frequencies per week.
“All flights will be operated with a long-haul Airbus aircraft offering lie-flat seats in Business Class, which we anticipate will be welcomed by our Business Class travellers, as we have seen a tremendous growth in demand for premium travel in Africa,” says Kendy Phohleli, SAA General Manager Commercial.
The new schedule will provide greater/additional connectivity to the SAA network and accommodate the current passenger and cargo demand that SAA is experiencing on the route.
Africa routes on which frequencies were recently increased include:
Johannesburg – Harare (from 18 to 19 per week);
Johannesburg – Lusaka (from 20 to 21);
Johannesburg – Abidjan (from two to three per week);
Johannesburg – Blantyre (from two to three per week);
Johannesburg – Dar es Salaam (from 13 to 14 per week);
Johannesburg – Kinshasa (from four to six per week);
Johannesburg – Nairobi (from 10 to 11 per week);
Johannesburg – Ndola (from three to four per week);
Johannesburg – Windhoek (from 20 to 21 per week).
