Air Botswana ditches Cape Town – Maun route

Going Your Way - Sometimes ;-)
Air Botswana (BP) has dropped its 4x weekly Cape Town - Maun route effective 31 March, just 10 months after its début. The route originally launched with daily flights back in June 2012 and predominantly catered for the leisure market.

The route currently operates with an Avro RJ85.
"We will now look to develop our Cape Town – Gaborone route, which is already performing well and possibly attracts a better leisure/business mix,” said Airport Services Manager: Johannesburg, Nada Phoosolo. – Source [TIR]
According to the airline, from 1 April, passengers between the two cities will instead be routed via Johannesburg under an agreement with BA Comair.

Airlink, however, is still operating daily scheduled flights between Johannesburg and Maun with its fleet of ten Embraer ERJ 135 regional jets – each configured with 37 economy seats.

Airlink's JHB - Maun daily flights operate as follows:
  • Departs JHB 11:45, arrives Maun 13:15
  • Return flights depart Maun 14:00, arrive JHB 15:40
