Air Botswana- Question????

Hi! Please refresh my memory.....what terminal at JNB are the Air Botswana flights? The same terminal as the international flights?

Also, anyone know if Air Botswana is more on time these days, compared to prior years? The reason i ask, if i have a 2.5-3 hour window during my return trip, is that sufficient time for my connection to get bk home?

Thanks
Hari

Hari,

You are arriving in the same terminal as the other international flights. Just go to the transfer zone and you'll be within minutes in the international departures hall.

Air Botswana was more than on time last month but that doesn't say anything about the future.

Greetz,

Johan

Are any other airlines flying JNB to Maun??? I had thought the monopoly might end in 2007.

Hari:

A few weeks ago, we took an Air Botswana flight from Maun to JNB and transfered to a British Airways flight from JNB to LHR. As we did not check our luggage through to LHR (not sure Air Botswana would have done that had we asked), we had to retrieve our bags at JNB, go through immigration and customs, and check in again for our BA flight to LHR. That process required that we negotiate between floors at JNB with our luggage and, in total, took about an hour. Please bear this in mind after your Air Botswana flight arrives at JNB.

Thanks, Mr.Zee....appreciate the info. Yes, the JNB airport is pretty slow to get the luggage onto the belt. As it stands, i have a 3.5 hour window between my Air Bots flight arriving in JNB and my connecting flight back to India.

Thanks
Hari
