Comair launches flights to Tanzania
28 Wed, Jul 2010

Starting November 2, Comair Limited, operator of British Airways in South Africa and kulula.com, will further expand its African route network with the launch of flights to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.


The flights will be operated by British Airways and the flights will also be integrated and sold through the kulula.com network.


“We look forward to including Dar es Salaam in our growing regional network,” said Stuart Cochrane, Executive Manager for Network Development at Comair. The growth of this network is part of our ongoing commitment to the South African government’s airlift strategy, which aims to improve access to and from South Africa for both business and tourism.”


The service will start with five flights a week, the full allocation granted to it by the International Air Services Licensing Council. However Cochrane said Comair’s intention would be to grow this route to a daily service as soon as possible.


“The introduction of additional flights to Dar es Salaam will bring a much-needed alternative service - and competitive pricing - to a market that is currently only serviced by one airline operator,” concluded Cochrane.


Bookings for the new Dar es Salaam route will go on sale from August 1.
