"I am delighted to announce that effective from 10 December 2018, we will be launching a new service into Mthatha from Gauteng to the Eastern Cape over the December period," said the airline's interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Siza Mzimela.
Mzimela said flying remains one of the most reliable and convenient modes of transportation in South Africa and the world.
"As we approach the end-of-year holidays, the newly introduced flights will provide the much-needed choice for the growing VFR (Visiting Friends and Family) market segment who would be seeking to spend quality time with friends and loved ones after a long and demanding year," she said.
The launch of the new Johannesburg-Mthatha route brings a total number of eight local and regional routes operated by SA Express to date. The routes include Johannesburg to Lubumbashi, Walvis Bay, Bloemfontein, Kimberly, and Hoedspruit, among others.
