CemAir’s new route providing weekly flights
Great news for business travellers and tourists is the launch of CemAir’s new route providing weekly flights from Margate, on Kwa-Zulu’s South Coast, to Cape Town, via Plettenberg Bay. Launching the new route on 15th March 2017, the airline will utilise its 19-seater ‘Beech 1900D’ aircraft for this fabulous much awaited route.
Departing Margate Airport at 09:00 on Thursday Flight 5Z0912 will arrive in Plettenberg Bay at 11:00. Connecting Flight 5Z 0902 departs Plettenberg Bay at 12:00 arriving in the Mother City (Cape Town) at 13:15.
The return Flight 5Z901 departs from the Mother City at 13:45, with arrival time at 15:00 in Plettenberg Bay. From Plettenberg Bay Flight 5Z0911 departs at 15:30 arriving at Margate Airport at 17:30.
Laura van Molen, CFO of CemAir stated, “We are launching the Margate-Cape Town route because it is very difficult to get from KZN to Cape Town. Although going by road to Cape Town is the same distance as from Johannesburg, the route is a difficult one to navigate”. She added that many requests had been received by the airline for flight connections from the South Coast to Cape Town and dependent upon demand, the airline would consider adding capacity. “We are aiming to give people based on the South Coast access to Cape Town and also looking at offering International tourists based in the Cape a way to access the South Coast directly,” she said.
