Cape Town welcomes Eswatini Air

On Friday, 2 June 2023, the inaugural flight landed at Cape Town International Airport and was pleasantly welcomed with a tradtional water cannon salute.

The Cape Town route will operate three flights per week on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from King Mswati III International Airport to Cape Town International Airport, reports Travel News.
Mark Maclean, Acsa Regional GM at Cape Town International Airport, said that that new route will provide travellers from both destinations with greater accessibility, opening opportunities for trade, investment, and collaboration.
“As the only airline connecting Eswatini and Cape Town directly, we believe that this new route will serve to strengthen tourism, business, and cultural exchanges between the Western Cape and Eswatini.” Maclean said, as per Travel News.
