Johannesburg, 15 June 2011: Comair Limited, operator of British Airways in South Africa will now be offering business and leisure travellers two daily flights between OR Tambo International and Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport in Nelspruit as part of its new schedule.

As of 1July 2011, British Airways will introduce an increased schedule which will include an early morning and late afternoon departure from OR Tambo International to Nelspruit.

Stuart Cochrane, Comair’s Executive Manager for Network Development and Alliances, says “The increase and change in our schedule allows for greater flexibility for our business travellers who wish to fly to Nelspruit and Johannesburg, to attend to their business commitments and fly back on the same day.

“Traditionally a popular route for the local and international tourism market, we’ve seen an increase in demand from business travellers which necessitated the revision of our schedule in order to accommodate this growing market,” says Cochrane.
