Comair Limited, operator of British Airways in South Africa, will offer business and leisure travellers two daily flights between OR Tambo International and Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport in Nelspruit as part of its new schedule.
Starting July 1, British Airways will introduce an increased schedule that will include an early-morning and late-afternoon departure from OR Tambo to Nelspruit.
Stuart Cochrane, Comair's Executive Manager for Network Development and Alliances, said the increase and change in the schedule allowed for greater flexibility for its business travellers who wish to fly to Nelspruit and Johannesburg, to attend to their business commitments and fly back on the same day.
"It is traditionally a popular route for the local and international tourism market, and we've seen an increase in demand from business travelers, which necessitated the revision of our schedule in order to accommodate this growing market," said Cochrane.
The new flights opened for bookings on June 15.
