South African Airways Re-times its Johannesburg-Libreville Service
South African Airways has advised its customers of time changes on its linked service between Johannesburg and Libreville Leon M'ba International Airport in Gabon.
The changes are as a result of the upgrade work being undertaken on the airport runway at the Libreville Leon M'ba International Airport in Gabon.
To effect runway repairs, Gabonese authorities will close the Libreville airport to operations from 00h00 until 10:00 (local time in Libreville) from 23 July until 12 August.
According to the airline, the airport closure will impact on both the departure and arrival times of SA090 and SA091, its Johannesburg-Libreville-Cotonou-Libreville-Johannesburg flight.
SAA has adapted its schedule accordingly for flights to depart and arrive two hours early on Tuesday, Fridays and Sundays and the Johannesburg flight which arrives on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
SAA’s flights between Libreville and Douala (SA086 and SA087) are not affected as these flights depart earlier and are therefore not affected by the Libreville airport closures.
SAA operates six times a week between Johannesburg and Libreville. The flight operates onwards from Libreville to Douala, Cameroon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays; and onwards to Cotonou, Benin on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
