SA to fly to Gan, Maldives

There will be eight round-trip flights between November 24, 2018 and January 12, 2019. The flights are to Gan, one of the southernmost islands.

These flights will be operated through a charter agreement between Air Tour Operators, SAA and the Ministry of Tourism in the Maldives. Starlight Holidays has been appointed sole GSA for Air Tour Operators for this routes.
Apparently using an A340.

The flight departing JNB on 12 Jan is going to be empty! And likewise the first return flight.

Nice to see SAA using their significant spare capacity in the charter market. They've done a bunch of charters for the SA government and did a bunch of charters in Europe during the UEFA finals earlier in the year.

Well Done SAA - nice to see SAA revenue management and commerical getting their act together.

-Guessing these tickets can't be purchased thru voyager and fares haven't been loaded as this is a Charter?

Correct. Fares not available to the public by SAA.
