BA grows African network

British Airways has substantially increased its African network, adding three additional destinations and 20 more services.

In Morocco it has just announced an increase in its schedule to Marrakech, from daily to 10 flights per week, and added a third weekly service to Agadir. This is the second time in less than a year that the airline has grown its Morocco services. Late last year, it added four flights a week to Marrakech and began a twice-weekly service to Agadir.

In West Africa, it started flying three times a week to Sierra Leone and Liberia.

The new flights to these fast-growing regional economies are in addition to the well-established West-African routes in Ghana and Nigeria. Schedule increases to East and southern Africa include increasing the Nairobi frequencies to eight per week. In South Africa, it confirmed three additional flights to Johannesburg, in addition to the existing double-daily services to the country’s business hub and its direct daily Cape Town/London flights.

In addition to this international network, British Airways’ franchise partner, Comair, operates between domestic and regional destinations in South and southern Africa, making over 700 flights per week. It recently added Maputo to its regional network.
