Eswatini Air launches flights to Durban tomorrow, 5 May, which will be its third route connecting the Kingdom of Eswatini to its neighbours. This comes hot on the heels of the successful launch of their first two phases of scheduled flights to and from Eswatini in March and April.
Phase I comprised of flights between Eswatini (King Mswati III airport) and Johannesburg which launched on 26 March 2023, while Phase II successfully launched on 14 April 2023 with flights between Eswatini and Zimbabwe’s international airport, Harare.
Phase III will see flights between Eswatini and Durban scheduled from 5 May 2023. Throughout May 2023, flights will be operated on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays as follows:
- Depart Eswatini at 10:30 to arrive in Durban at 11:30
- Depart Durban at 14:10 to arrive in Eswatini at 15:10.
The number of flights on this route will increase to daily from 1 June 2023 with the following time slots:
- Depart Eswatini at 17:30 to arrive in Durban at 18:30
- Depart Durban at 07:55 to arrive in Eswatini at 09:55.
Durban is an important destination for Eswatini Air as it provides the required air transport linkages needed by their customers, primarily those travelling for business, leisure as well as those visiting friends and relatives.
The flight to and from Durban will also offer seamless and convenient transit stops for passengers traveling between Durban and Harare, between Durban and Johannesburg as well as those travelling between Durban and Cape Town.
Since the launch of the first two routes, the airline have received overwhelming support in terms of passenger numbers and enquiries on their services. Passenger numbers on flights continue to increase week after week.
With a service to Cape Town due to be launched in June, these are very exciting times for Eswaitni and its tourism industry as access to the Kingdom gets better and better.
The airline has also created a state of the art website in which passengers can easily plan their travel with Eswatini Air, find out about their services, and more.
