Desmond O’Connor, Executive Head of Revenue Management at British Airways (operated by Comair), says, “As we expand our schedule and offer more choice, we are pleased to now offer the full-service British Airways experience on these new routes. Furthermore, East London will also be displayed as a destination, as part of British Airways’ global distribution network.
“We anticipate that our new flights will open up more opportunities for corporate and leisure travellers to conduct business or enjoy a welcome break in the beautiful Eastern Cape. We will be offering holiday packages through our tour operating divisions, which we hope will help to rejuvenate domestic tourism to the region.”
