SAA advices of time changes to Libreville route due to airport runway upgrade

Posted 27 July 2017 · Add Comment

South African Airways has advised its customers of time changes on their Johannesburg to Libreville route. These changes are as a result of the upgrade work being undertaken on the airport runway at the Libreville Leon M'ba International Airport in Gabon.

SAA operates six times a week between Johannesburg and Libreville. The flight operates onwards from Libreville to Douala, Cameroon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays; and onwards to Cotonou, Benin on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

SAA has been advised by the Gabonese authorities that the Libreville airport will be closed from 00h00 until 10:00 (local time in Libreville) from 23 July until 12 August. The closure of the airport is in order for the necessary upgrade work on the airport runway to be carried out.

The airport closure will impact on both the departure and arrival times of SA090 and SA091, the flight from Johannesburg – Libreville – Cotonou – Libreville - Johannesburg. SAA has adapted its schedule accordingly for flights to depart and arrive two hours early on Tuesday, Fridays and Sundays and the Johannesburg flight which arrives on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

SAA’s flights between Libreville and Douala (SA086 and SA087) are not affected as these flights depart earlier and are therefore not affected by the Libreville airport closures.
