British Airways (operated by Comair) will add a third flight to its Johannesburg – Mauritius schedule from Thursday 3 March 2022.
The airline’s Sales and Marketing Executive, Brian Kitchin, says demand has steadily grown since it reintroduced twice weekly flights between Johannesburg and Port Louis in February.
“Mauritius has always been a perennial favourite holiday destination for South Africans and this, with the pent-up demand from people who may have had to cancel other holiday plans has seen a relatively quick recovery on the route.”
He anticipates demand to continue increasing, peaking over the approaching March – April school holidays and Easter break.
Over the holiday break, British Airways (operated by Comair’s) sister company kulula holidays is offering a variety of inclusive packages starting from R15 499 per person sharing for a seven-nights including airfares and self-catering accommodation.
There is also a seven-night family special starting from R21 536 per person sharing that includes airfares, accommodation and meals. Airfares apply to children under 12 sharing, but they stay for free.
British Airways (operated by Comair) flies to Mauritius on Saturdays, Tuesdays and Thursdays with flights departing OR Tambo in the morning and arriving in the late afternoon.
