- 1time, the South African low-cost airline, saw two major developments to its network take place on 5 March. The airline, which operates MD83 aircraft, launched its third international route, connecting Johannesburg (JNB) with Mombasa (MBA) in Kenya with two weekly flights. The route follows the airline’s international operations to Zanzibar and Livingstone. This is the first time the two airports are connected non-stop since Kenya Airways operated the route 2004-2008. The airline also added another South African airport to its network; Lanseria (HLA), located between Johannesburg and Pretoria. The new routes to Cape Town (CPT) and Durban (DUR) each operate twice-daily. The Cape Town route competes with fellow LCCs Kulula.com and Mango, which operate 46 and 20 weekly frequencies respectively, while the Durban route faces Kulula.com’s 36 flights a week.
