British Airways is due to start operating in Mozambique in May 2013, via South Africa’s Comair, with scheduled flights between Oliver Tambo and Maputo international airports, Mozambican newspaper O País reported.
The schedule of the daily flights – which includes two flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays – has been designed to allow international travellers to transfer in Johannesburg to onward flights to Maputo.
According to a statement issued by the airline reservations from Maputo to Johannesburg and vice-versa will be on sale from 6 December 2012 on the British Airways customer phone line, as well as through local travel agencies.
“British Airways is a complete service airline operating over 400 flights a week in Southern Africa, including to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Harare, Livingstone, Mauritius, Victoria Falls, and Windhoek,” the statement said.
Comair has been operating in the South African markets for over six decades, and in 1996 took on the regional services of British Airways in South Africa. (macauhub)
