British Airways will increase flight frequencies on its route network commencing mid-September 2019. In total British Airways will operate 34 additional flights a week on routes serviced from Johannesburg, which includes Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth as well as between Cape Town and Durban.
According to Shaun Pozyn, Head of Marketing for British Airways, for more than two decades, the company has always proudly served South Africa, its people and its businesses. “Having more frequent flights, will mean more choice for tourists and business travellers alike, giving our customers more flights to the destinations they love, under the British Airways brand.”
“The routes on which we are increasing frequency are already very popular and by introducing more frequency on these routes, we will give customers even more flexibility and more choice”.
Apart from the upped frequency on these selected routes, British Airways will continue to service the various destinations that they travel to in sub-Saharan Africa, those being Harare, Livingstone, Victoria Falls, Windhoek and Mauritius.
As always, British Airways, Executive Club customers travelling within southern Africa on British Airways will have the added benefit to earn Avios and Tier points, which allow for added benefits and services, some of which include entry into the award-winning SLOW lounges, fast-tracking check-in, free seat selection and meal preferences which are all dependent on one’s Executive Club status.
