NATIONAL NEWS - Commuter and regional carrier CemAir is delighted to announce the commencement of its scheduled flight service between Bloemfontein’s Bram Fischer Airport and Port Elizabeth Airport.
"Currently there are no direct flights from Bloemfontein to Port Elizabeth. We did a survey some month ago when we introduced the flights between Bloemfontein and George, and the public indicated that they would love to have this route for both leisure and business purposes," said Nicolene Myburgh, head of schedule services at Cemair.
"Currently the only way to get to Port Elizabeth from Bloemfontein is either to drive or to fly via Johannesburg or Cape Town, which is not only costly but also time consuming," she said.
From October 4, CemAir will initially offer return flights between the two regional centres on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The route will be flown in a CemAir-owned Beechcraft 1900. The overall gate-to-gate time will be 70 minutes with a flying time of around 60 minutes.
CemAir is also pleased to announce further schedule enhancements with increased frequency on the existing Bloemfontein to George route, as well as both the Cape Town to Plettenberg Bay and Johannesburg to Plettenberg Bay routes from the October 1.
CemAir is an established scheduled airline operator currently flying from Johannesburg to Bloemfontein, Margate, Sishen and Plettenberg Bay as well as between Bloemfontein and George, and between Cape Town and Plettenberg Bay.
The company was established in 2006 and owns a fleet of 23 aircraft, which consists of Bombardier CRJ, Beech 1900D and Bombardier Dash 8 craft.
