SAA cuts flights to Beijing


According to eTNW, South African Airways will cut its flights to Beijing (China) in the first week of April.

The route will be serviced by Air China as part of a codeshare agreement. Air China will begin direct services to South Africa in May.

SAA has already cut back capacity on its Mumbai (India) route and – subject to approval – will look at fully withdrawing from the route.

The airline is also considering re-routing its direct flights to New York and Washington to include a stop either in Senegal or Ghana.
