SAA sells prime Heathrow spot

Cape Town - South African Airways (SAA) has sold one of its three exclusive daily landing-time slots at London’s Heathrow Airport, The Witness reports.

Landing-time slots for Heathrow are so difficult to acquire that SAA will probably never be able to get this one back, the report said.

Beeld had reported that the time slot sold is the one used for the regular Cape Town-London flight, which will be discontinued on August 15.

SAA commercial general manager Theunis Potgieter reportedly confirmed the deal, but would not name the buyer or the price paid for the slot.
