Kenya aviation news – South Africa’s 1Time announces Mombasa flights from March 2012

Information was just confirmed that 1Time, one of South Africas low cost carriers, will add Mombasa to their network by March this year, following successful flights between OR Tambo in Johannesburg to Zanzibar. The twice a week service to Mombasa will open the South African market for holidays at the Kenyan coast, and hoteliers have overwhelmingly welcomed the new connection, which will finally offer nonstop flights between South Africa and Kenyas Indian Ocean port city of Mombasa, eliminating the tiring and often hassle some transfer in Nairobi.
Initially only operating on domestic flights within South Africa 1Time has since its inception in 2004 widened their reach with flights to Livingstone / Zambia, Zanzibar and now Mombasa.

  1. And now 1time have finally got the Mombasa route up and running. They also recently started flying from Johannesburg Lanseria Airport, but the question in South African aviation circles is whether they’re going to survive long along to make it worthwhile – Velvet Sky has got massive problems, and in the last few months 3 of the 1time founders have resigned from the company (Glenn Orsmond last year, and Rodney James & Michael Kaminski last week). 1time reported terrible results to 30 June 2011, and we’re waiting for their annual report to 31 December 2011. They also have to find money to conduct a fleet renewal, as their gas-guzzling MD8X’s just aren’t competitive on SA’s routes at current fuel prices.
