Air Austral is pursuing its expansion in the Indian Ocean and has decided to strengthen the commercial ties forged over many years with tourist destinations such as South Africa.

In response to a strong demand from its customer base and in order to offer them more travel options, the airline of Reunion Island will offer a third weekly flight between St. Denis de la Réunion and Johannesburg.

From December 9th 2016, Air Austral will make it possible to reach Reunion not twice, but three times per week on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays with flights operated by Boeing 737-800. 
 
Making the most of the recent upgrade of its fleet and supported by the competent authority of South Africa, Air Austral is committed to strengthening its presence on this important route and has once again reaffirmed its desire to contribute to the economic, touristic and cultural exchanges in the Indian Ocean.
 
“Air Austral is happy to offer its passengers the opportunity of a third weekly frequency between Johannesburg and Reunion Island. South Africa is a historical destination at the heart of the company’s Indian Ocean network. The launch of this new frequency shows our strong commitment to further enhance our presence in this area and introduce new holiday options for South Africans. ” Jean Marc Grazzini, Vice President Commercial.
