SAA adds capacity to the Eastern Cape for business travellers

Posted 12 June 2018 · Add Comment

South African Airways (SAA) has added capacity to the Eastern Cape for business travellers between East London and Johannesburg.

 

SAA currently operates 24 flights per week between Johannesburg and East London, with a double daily service (except on Mondays and Saturdays). Effective Sunday 10 June 2018 the airline has added additional flights on three days of the week, increasing the service to 30 flights per week.

SAA has scheduled the additional flights to cater specifically for the business traveller wanting to travel in time for meetings and who require additional flexibility for return flights.

“Adding these early departures out of East London and late returns from Johannesburg is an ideal way for business travellers from the coastal city to be in Johannesburg early morning to conclude their business and return the same day,” says Tlali Tlali, SAA spokesperson.
