Johannesburg - SA Express on Wednesday said it was introducing additional scheduled flights on Wednesdays between 14 December 2016 and 4 January 2017.
This comes after high demand in the market for flights to Sun City, South Africa.
SA Express said its first commercial flights to the Pilanesberg International Airport started in April 2015 and it currently offers return flights into the Pilanesberg International Airport from OR Tambo International Airport and from Cape Town International twice a week on Monday and Friday, with growth on the horizon
Marketing Manager at Sun City, Andrew Irumba, said: "A year and a half since Sun City and airline SA Express linked the skies between Cape Town, Johannesburg and the premium lifestyle resort in the North West province, passenger volumes have increased steadily and to meet demand over the festive season, there will be additional flights, bringing the number of flights per week to three."
Irumba said the availability of commercial flights to and from Pilanesberg International Airport had opened up the gateway for easier and faster access to Sun City and the numerous things to do in Rustenburg.
This had helped to bolster leisure and business tourism in the North West Province.
