Johannesburg - Comair Limited, operator of British Airways in southern Africa will commence with scheduled services between Maputo International Airport and Johannesburg, O.R Tambo International Airport in May next year.

The flight schedule comprising daily return flights with a double daily service on Tuesdays and Saturdays is conveniently timed to enable ease of connectivity for international travellers transferring through OR Tambo International Airport to Maputo.

Mozambique is a country blessed with a wide variety of natural resources, from Hydroelectric power to coal and is a focus for many foreign companies that are currently active in the region undertaking various mining initiatives including coal, oil and gas.

Shaun Pozyn, Marketing Manager for British Airways says, "We are excited to introduce our new service as it allows us to continue to grow our footprint in Africa. In addition to the large volumes of business travellers we anticipate will make use of our new service, Mozambique is fast becoming known as a world-class tourist destination. The country has a warm climate, 2 700km of tropical and sub-tropical coastline, world-class conservation areas, exotic cities, and a rich Arabic, African and Portuguese heritage."

Bookings to-and-from Maputo will be available for sale effective 6 December 2012 via the British Airways Contact Centre on 0860 I FLY BA (0860 4 359 22) or +27 (11) 921 0222 as well as through local travel agents.
