Joburg-Munich decade flight milestone celebratedBy TINTSWALO BALOYI
JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE South African Airways (SAA) is celebrating ten years connecting the local metropolis of Johannesburg and Munich in Germany.
Initially equipped with three weekly connections, the new service quickly showed potential and was already increased to daily flights in 2007.
Since then SAA has been offering a connection from Munich to Johannesburg daily.
Michael Bentele, Head of Europe of SAA, emphasized the importance of this route.
“The daily flights between Munich and Johannesburg are a significant part of our European network strategy and also an important connection for the industry and trade as well as for tourism from Southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland,” Bentele said.
This, he said, was among the reasons the Airbus A340-600 with more capacity, would be deployed on the route again, as we are currently flying with the new Airbus A330-300.
“From the beginning, Munich Airport (Flughafen München GmbH) has been an exceptional partner and a comprehensive network in various fields was established, of which the sister airport agreement with the Airports Company South Africa is an important part,” Bentele said.
Munich is a central hub of Star Alliance, of which SAA has been a member for over ten years, and offers excellent onward connections especially to Southern and Eastern Europe.
