South African Express is set to add another return flight between Johannesburg and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), coming into effect on 30 March.
The airline operates a 70-seater regional jet CRJ 700 on the route and the additional return flight between Johannesburg and Lubumbashi will apply on Saturdays.
"The introduction of this additional frequency is in response to high passenger demand on the route, and SA Express is most grateful for the overwhelming support that it is receiving on this destination," says SA Express Interim Chief Executive Officer Siza Mzimela
The additional weekend service between the two cities will see flights departing Johannesburg's OR Tambo International Airport (ORTIA) at 9:20am and arriving at Lubumbashi Airport 11:45am.
The return flights on the same day will depart Lubumbashi at 12:30, landing at ORTIA at 3pm.
Meanwhile, April 2019 will see the airline commemorating 25 years of connecting secondary destinations to main airport hubs in South Africa and the region. The Silver Anniversary coincides with the celebrations of South Africa's 25 years of democracy.
