Swazi airline to introduce daily flights to Mozambique – Reports
A new Swazi airline is expected to offer daily flights between Mbabane and the Mozambican capital Maputo from December this year, according to media reports monitored here on Thursday.
The reports said Ligwalagwala Airways plans to offer 20-minute daily flights to Maputo at budget prices before the end of 2017.
They said the Swazi-owned company had secured a lease agreement with an unnamed international operator that would see it renting a 50-seater plane for use on the Mbabane-Maputo route.
“The company which set aside $923 000 investment capital has set an ambitious target to provide the flight to Maputo from the King Mswati III International Airport, probably by December 2017,” the reports said.
Future plans for the Swazi airline include the introduction of two flights per week to Mauritius.
The company said their main motivation before deciding to venture into the project at full scale was to ease travelling in and out of Swaziland to other African countries and abroad.
