FROM 01 Mar, South African Airways flight 281 from PER to JNB will depart Perth at 2.30pm & arrive in Johannesburg at 7.45pm.
The current departure time is 11.45pm, arriving at 4.30am, with Regional General Manager Tim Clyde-Smith assuring the airline had been working to ensure the continued success of the route for some time.
“The new schedule will improve the efficiency of our fleet by operating one aircraft as opposed to two currently flying on this route,” he said.
“The optimisation of this flight makes commercial sense, thus ensuring the longevity of the route and improving efficiency for our valued customers.”
The change follows a wider network shrinkage (TD 07 Feb).
