Fly Blue Crane to Launch Cape Town-Windhoek Service
In yet another significant milestone, Fly Blue Crane has received approval from South African and Namibian authorities to launch services between Cape Town and Windhoek.
The airline, which took to the skies from its Johannesburg hub in September 2015, will launch its inaugural return flights between the two cities on May 13 and 15. Exact flight schedules on the route will be released soon.
Fly Blue Crane chief Commercial Officer, Theunis Potgieter, said the addition of the new route was in line with the airline's regional ambitions that were articulated at the time of its launch last year, with more Southern African destinations to be considered as the airline grows.
Fly Blue Crane launched its inaugural flights from OR Tambo International Airport on September 1 last year. It offers cargo services on all its flights to Kimberley and Bloemfontein, as well as between Kimberley and Cape Town, and between Bloemfontein and Cape Town.
The airline operates modern and fuel-efficient 50-seater Embraer Regional Jet 145 (ERJ) aircraft in a single class configuration.
