Which Airline Should You Choose to Fly With?
Are you wondering which airline flies to Mozambique or how to get to Mozambique from South Africa? Many travellers ask us how many hours the fights are from Maputo to Johannesburg, and we tell them, just over an hour. And this all depends on whether your flights goes via another international airport like Inhambane or Vilanculos, en route to Maputo. It all depends on whether you are flying direct to your city destination for some extraordinary nightlife and a little bit of business, or if you are flying to a luxury beach boutique hotel to find some snorkelling adventures, diving excursions and ocean safaris to see the whales.
Mozambique Travel is here to help you design the best travel plan for your ultimate beach holiday. We offer you the convenience of flying direct to Maputo from Oliver Tambo International in Johannesburg. Let’s take a look at the flight schedules for SA Airlink for flying times between Johannesburg and Pemba, Vilanculos, and Beira.
