Air Botswana extends routes, signs with Mozambique airline

GABORONE, — Air Botswana has extended its route network by signing a special prorate agreement (SPA) with Mozambique’s national airline, Lam Linhas Aeras De Mocambique (LAM).

Thabiso Leshoai, Air Botswana’s corporate communications officer, said on Wednesday that the SPA effectively extends Air Botswana’s route network by providing connections in Johannesburg to LAM’s seven destinations in Mozambique, including a choice of commercial cities and beach resorts.

“These destinations include Maputo, Beira, Vilanculos, Pemba, Tete, Nampula and Inhambana (in Mozambique) and the SPA will also allow for through check-in of baggage, which allows passengers to check in their luggage from Gaborone, Maun and Francistown onwards to destinations in Mozambique,” he said.

He said the airlines’ mutual customers in Botswana would be offered the added convenience of using an Air Botswana through-ticket and fares for the combined flights to and from Mozambique.

“The SPA similarly allows for the same reciprocal arrangement for passengers traveling from Mozambique, who will be able to book and purchase tickets via Johannesburg in South Africa onwards on Air Botswana’s flights to Gaborone, Maun, and Francistown,” Leshoai said.
