Third jet service from May 23

2011-05-05 00:00

FOLLOWING the successful introduction of its double daily jet service to Pietermaritzburg in February, SAA Airlink has announced that it will add a third jet service between Johannesburg and the city from May 23.

Airlink offers four return flights per day to Pietermaritzburg, two of which are operated by BAE Avro Regional passenger jets.

From Monday, May 23, there will be a mid- afternoon flight, departing O.R. Tambo airport at 3.10 pm and arriving in Pietermaritzburg at 4.10 pm, with the return flight leaving at 4.40 pm and arriving in Johannesburg at 5.40 pm.

Karin Murray, Airlink’s marketing and sales manager said the additional afternoon flight is a “natural evolution” of its service.

“The response to our early morning and afternoon jet flights has been extremely positive.

“Not only has the jet service been able to deliver additional comfort and convenience, but with the benefits of the jet’s capacity and operating efficiency we have also been able to offer the affordable fares, which the Pietermaritzburg community was looking for,” she added.

Fares begin at R450 one way.
