The service launch will be in four stages




Phase I launch will begin in March 2023 at Johannesburg (JNBKing)’s Mswati III International Airport operating flights twice daily.




Eswatini Air released information about its intended operating schedule, fares, and notice of the launch of its reservations services. Eswatini Air flights will now begin, marking the end of a prolonged wait.




Although this is an entirely new operation, the airline is urging prudence to guarantee a seamless debut into the market.




Eswatini Air has determined that it is appropriate to launch the service in four stages.




Beginning on March 26, 2023, flights will operate twice daily out of Johannesburg (JNBKing )’s Mswati III International Airport (SHO) as part of phase I launch.




On Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, four additional flights will be added as part of Phase II, which will start on April 14 of 2023.




Beginning on April 14, 2023, Phase III will add four additional flights weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays to the schedule for Harare (HRE).




Phase IV, the last launch phase, will commence on June 2, 2023, and it will include Cape Town in the route network. The flights will take place on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays each week.




The national airline of Eswatini is Eswatini Air, which is based there. Despite initial plans to launch operations in June 2022, the airline ultimately received an AOC in December 2022.




In February, it was reported that Eswatini Air applied for and obtained Foreign Operators Permits (FOP) from the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ), alongside Zambia Airways. 




The permit enables the airline to run passenger and cargo operations at Robert Mugabe International Airport in Harare and on departing flights.




The development confirms the nation’s commitment to maintaining its open skies policy.
