If you have to travel extensively across West and Central Africa, you may likely have flown an Asky Airlines flight or two. Now you will be able to fly Asky Airlines to Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport, beginning June 15, 2019.
The airline will connect Lagos to Johannesburg with a daily service, via Douala and Libreville. Douala will have three direct weekly flights and Libreville will have four direct weekly flights. The flights will be operated with a Boeing 737-800 Next Generation.
A flight at the end of June, from Lagos, is priced at approximately $380 and it is roughly the same price from Douala.
The regional carrier was launched with Ethiopian Airlines as the strategic partner and commenced operations in January 2010. Its main hub is the Lomé-Tokoin Airport, Togo. The airline serves 22 destinations in 20 West and Central African countries, including Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana, Gambia, and Cameroon.
In May 2018, the airline took possession of two Boeing 737-700 Next Generation aircraft, leased from Ethiopian Airlines, which brought its total fleet size to eight. Other routes soon to be announced, include Nouakchott, Mauritania, and Praia, Cape Verde.
