Jean Marc Grazzini, Commercial Vice President for Air Austral says, “Air Austral is happy to offer its passengers the opportunity of a third weekly frequency between Johannesburg and Reunion Island. South Africa is a historical destination at the heart of the company’s Indian Ocean network. The launch of this new frequency shows our strong commitment to further enhance our presence in this area and introduce new holiday options for South Africans.”
Travelers now have the chance to spend more time in the St. Denis area with the new arrival time. From intimate museums to Creole delicacies and fantastic street art, the capital city of the French overseas department of Reunion packs a punch. The new schedule also allows for different lengths of stay to ensure that visitors to Reunion really do make the most of their trip – taking in the natural beauty, enjoying the local cuisine, have a little time out at one of the spas or participate in one of the many adventure activities on offer. Why not visit St Paul’s market, one of the island’s most beautiful markets (Saturdays only).
