Travel: South African Airways Builds Capacity

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

The changes to the airline’s schedule are in line with demand trends in the current economic environment. Off peak flights on several domestic and international routes have been reduced in keeping with a decline in demand.

However, SAA will continue to take up new opportunities in line with its plans to concentrate future growth on its extensive African route network. As such, its presence in West Africa has been strengthened and additional frequencies have been added on routes to both Australia and Argentina.

Further increasing its footprint in West Africa, three extra flights have been added to the popular West African destination of Lagos, Nigeria. This increases the number of frequencies on this route from four to seven per week. On four of these days, SAA will use a Boeing 747-400 on this route due to increased demand as well as the requirement for a first class service on this route.

Also in West Africa, flights to Douala, Cameroon, will increase from two to three per week.

On the route to Perth, Australia, SAA is increasing the number of flights from five to seven per week; while flights from Johannesburg to Buenos Aires, Argentina, will increase from two to three per week.

SAA will continue to closely monitor market demand and look for new market opportunities going forward. Further expansion of flight frequencies throughout Africa is expected to take place later this year.
