British Airways South Africa


Looking to fly in true British style in South Africa? Book your British Airways SA flights using the flight booking form above, or read on for more information about British Airways in South Africa below.

British Airways' flights in South Africa are operated by Comair Limited, a BA franchisee and affiliate member of the Oneworld global airline alliance. The franchise agreement between British Airways and Comair dates back to 1996, and in early 2000 BA acquired a minority stake in Comair. Given Comair's steadily rising market share and commensurate turnover growth, the agreement was extended for another 11 years in 2007."

Known for its signature hospitality and great in-flight experience, British Airways / Comair is frequently the choice of business flyers in South Africa and further afield.

Which cities do British Airways SA fly to?

Headquartered in Johannesburg at OR Tambo International Airport, Comair operates scheduled services on numerous high-traffic domestic routes, focusing on flights to Cape Town and Durban. Comair / British Airways also flies to Mauritius, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe on a regular basis.

The Fleet

In South Africa, the BA / Comair fleet consists, in the main, of Boeing 737s. Their new fleet of next-generation, fuel efficient Boeing 737-800s acquired in late 2013 is already giving Comair a strategic advantage in terms of operational costs. In contrast, key competitor SAA is blaming its ageing fleet and high fuel bills for rocketing flight ticket prices and plummeting financials. You can find out more about the BA Fleet here.

In a market where a succession of low cost operators and emerging airlines have been crushed by anti competitive behaviour by SAA and Mango, in particular, Comair's growth and increasing profitability is significant. Yet it's not been all smooth sailing; between November 2013 and January 2014, fuel prices have risen from around R8 to R9 per litre, costing Comair / British Airways an additional R20 million per month.

While this factor clearly places pressure on the airline to raise flight prices, Comair shareholders have no reason to complain; the airline reported an interim dividend of 5c per share following a strong performance in its half year to December 2013.

BA Code Share Agreements

Comair / British Airways presently has code sharing agreements in place with the following airlines: Iberia, KLM, Cathay Pacific and Kulula Airlines, Comair's local low cost carrier brand.
