An air route linking Johannesburg, South Africa, with Maputo, Mozambique, has been launched by British Airways (operated by Comair). The 65 minute flight will operate daily five days a week and twice daily on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

“We are excited to commence with this new route to Maputo as it allows us to grow our footprint in Africa,” says Shaun Pozyn, Marketing Manager for British Airways.

“In addition to the large volumes of business travelers 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.”
