South African Airways (SAA) has announced the resumption of flights between South Africa and Malawi with effect from the 16th of March, 2023.

Lamola was accompanied at the Malawi High Commission by Ms Vimla Maistry, Head of Corporate Affairs at SAA and other diplomatic staff.
This follows a series of engagements and negotiations between SAA, the mission, and the government of Malawi.
During the visit, Prof Lamola expressed enthusiasm that SAA will finally be operating on this route as the challenges they have had were being resolved.
He stated that the national flag carrier has had to restructure and one of the focus areas was promotion of AFCTA within the SADC region and hence the rigorous planning that preceded the resumption of flights.
He commended Malawi High Commission for its efforts, commitment, and collaboration in ensuring the resumption of SAA’s  flights to Malawi.
On her part, Ndau commended SAA for its  decision saying it signified renewed confidence that South African businesses have in the operating environment in Malawi.
She also reiterated that the resumption of flights will contribute to the improvement of the tourism and transport sectors as stipulated in the MW2063 Agenda.
“We are excited with this development  which we believe will ensure that Malawi should remain as one of the most  affordable tourist destinations in the region.
“This will certainly compliment Government’s efforts of improving our economy,” she said.
Ticket sales began on Monday 6th February 2023.
