SAA celebrates 10 years of service to Munich

Posted 6 July 2017 · Add Comment

For exactly 10 years, South African Airways (SAA) has been connecting the Munich hub with the South African city of Johannesburg.

 

Michael Bentele, Head of Europe of South African Airways, emphasises the importance of this route: “The daily flights between Munich and Johannesburg are a significant part of our European network strategy and also an important connection for the industry and trade as well as for tourism from Southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland. This is also one of the reasons why the Airbus A340-600 with more capacity, will be deployed on the route again, as we are currently flying with the new Airbus A330-300. From the beginning, Munich Airport (Flughafen München GmbH) has been an exceptional partner and a comprehensive network in various fields was established, of which the sister airport agreement with the Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) is an important part.”
