SAA Alliance partners to serve Mpumalanga Airport

In a press statement released by SAA Corporate Communications it was stated:

"South African Airways alliance partners, SA Express and SA Airlink, will start services to the new Kruger-Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) scheduled to open 21 October.

When the new airport opens, the KMIA management will close Skukuza and Nelspruit airports and KMIA becomes the sole airport for scheduled operations in the area.

The alliance partners will start operating the route from Johannesburg to KMIA as from the scheduled opening day.

Passengers originally booked to fly to Skukuza will be transported by road from KMIA to Skukuza Airport.

From 20 January SA Express will be the sole operator from Johannesburg to the new airport. 

Negotiations are underway for services from Cape Town to KMIA to be operated by SA Airlink.

SAA is considering servicing KMIA with its own aircraft from Johannesburg and Cape Town in the near future."

Nationwide Airways

Nationwide Airlines and the Mpumalanga Kruger International Airport

Nationwide Airlines, South Africa is planning to commence scheduled services to the new Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (MQP) from 6th Dec 2002.

The initial start-up schedule will comprise of four return flights a week, operating between Cape Town, Johannesburg and Kruger, Monday's/ Wednesday's / Friday's and Sunday's. More flights are planned from March 2003 offering in addition connections to Victoria Falls Zambia and Port Elizabeth, these will be added as the destination moves towards its peak season.  

'Nationwide Airlines has always been an enthusiastic supporter of this new and important gateway to the Kruger Park.' Said commercial executive Chris Hoare 'Our large international tour operators have always been somewhat frustrated by the lack of capacity to the destination, often having to resort to expensive charter and long coach drives when faced with their big groups. Now, with this new Boeing 747 capable airport available to us, we are able to move passengers in the volumes demanded by our key clients and to connect Cape Town with this important well known destination'.

Nationwide's 09:45 departure out of Cape Town bound for Kruger, offers a leisurely start to a safari program in contrast with the red-eye specials currently on offer. An afternoon return flight will allow guests a morning game-drive and a brunch before they move on down to Cape Town.

Nationwide is also planning a lodge hopper service that will carry its passengers onwards from MQP to the private lodges in the region.

Additional flights and added value features of this new Nationwide service, will be announced in due course.
