South African Government welcomes the introduction of a direct flight from Johannesburg to Mumbai
The South African Consulate in Mumbai conveys its congratulations to the South African Airways for introducing a new A330-200 Airbus which operates from Mumbai to Johannesburg. The Consul General, HE Pule Malefane together with Ms. Hannelie Slabber from South African Tourism Office received the new aircraft on its maiden flight in Mumbai. The new Airbus entrenches SAA’s commitment in offering an enhanced service to customers travelling between India and South Africa, and also adding value to our efforts of encouraging more business visitors to explore the opportunities available in the country.
We know that the more we improve on products and services, including experience, the more the chances of increasing volumes and spending. The new product in the market augurs well for our drive of growing our economy and creating jobs for our people and should be welcomed.
We are confident that through a responsive, flexible and caring approach and a friendly service we will improve on our trade relations with the people of India and also work together with them towards our goal of building a prosperous country, a stable continent and a better world for all.
