South African Airways (SAA) has added more flights to some of its key African and international destinations.
“South African Airways’ growth strategy is focused on further strengthening its African route network, as well as adding capacity on key international routes which have shown a strong growth in demand,” says Theunis Potgieter, SAA General Manager Commercial.
With effective from 19 August, SAA will offer an additional flight to Ghana on a Sunday, which grows the service between Johannesburg and Accra from five to six flights per week.
Accra is an important travel destination for SAA customers in West Africa. SAA operates its new A330-200s on this route, which offers customer 186 seats in economy and 36 in business class.
Further to expanding its African route network, the airline is also growing two international routes.
From 16 August an additional flight will be added to Perth, Australia, which increases this service from six to seven services per week. Both the A340-300 and the A340-600 will operate this route.
The route to Mumbai, India was strengthened from 16 June this year with an additional flight bringing the service to five flights per week from the previous four. Due to an even stronger demand on this route, a further frequency has now been added and SAA will be offering a total of six flights per week with an additional flight on Tuesdays - returning on Wednesdays - as from 21 August 2012.
