Print  Send to a Friend
British Airways (operated by Comair) has advised that it will no longer be operating flights between OR Tambo International Airport and Maputo International Airport from February 8.

Since launching in May 2013, the route has proved to be commercially unviable for the airline. Iain Meaker, Commercial Distribution Executive for Comair, says: “After much consideration and review we have decided to withdraw the Maputo route to ensure the airline remains sustainable.”

Passengers already booked with BA Comair will be re-accommodated by the airline on SAA at no additional cost. Un-ticketed bookings will be cancelled.
