SAA introduces new sector to Central Africa network

JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SOUTH African Airways (SAA) has enhanced its Central African route network.

SAA flies to five destinations in Central Africa – Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Douala in Cameroon, Brazzaville and Pointe Noire in the Republic of Congo, and to Libreville in Gabon.

With effect from 31 July SAA will reschedule its flights to operate from Johannesburg to Brazzaville and the same flight then continues to Pointe Noire.

SAA will continue to serve Cotonou, in Benin and will now do so utilising its service to Libreville, Gabon, effectively introducing a new sector between Libreville and Cotonou. SAA has secured traffic rights enabling it to pick up and drop off passengers between Libreville and Cotonou in both directions.

Aaron Munetsi, SAA General Manager Commercial (Acting), said destinations we serve in Central Africa, with flying times of just over five hours from Johannesburg are best served by this enhanced schedule which offers some of the markets non-stop flights from and to Johannesburg.

At the same time we are offering our valued customers increased frequencies and connections through our hub at OR Tambo International Airport to the entire South African Airways network,” said Munetsi.

The enhancements to SAA’s route network will enable the airline to offer more frequencies to other markets in its network such as Mauritius and Harare where demand keeps growing.
