London flight prices
Experience London at its finest, when the parks are in bloom and the air cool. Spring is the perfect time to experience the city before the summer crowds arrive. Enjoy the gentle sun as you stroll through the city's big parks and duck into stylish shops when the rain comes pouring down. Its not only the weather that makes spring so attractive, flight prices are also fairly affordable throughout the months of April and May. Travellers planning a shopping spree should look carefully before booking though, as so many airlines are now excluding checked luggage.

Qatar Airways launched its flights to Maputo yesterday, with the first flight arriving to the traditional water salute and the even more traditional dancers.

Etihad has purchased 2 A330-200 aircraft for $418m. The planes have a range of 14,000km. "As our operations and network continue to grow in scale, we feel the A330-200 is the right fleet type to expand with." said the CEO.

From February 2013 Etihad is launching flights to Hong Kong in partnership with Air Seychelles (Etihad is a fourty percent shareholder in Air Seychelles).

Etihad has postponed its planned 2 Nov 2012 launch of flights to Addis Ababa, due to the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority's rejection of the airline's application for an operating permit.

The Purple shall rule! Leana & Ernest embarked on their own cycle tour from Cape Town to Bloemfontein. Their route was from Cape Town to Kleinmond, Hermanus, Gansbaai, Bredasdorp, Swellendam, Heidelberg, Stilbaai, Mossel Bay, Wilderness, Knysna, Keurboomstrand, Storms River Village, Jeffreys Bay, Colchester, Peterson, Middleton, Cradock, Hofmeyr, Steynsburg, Burgersdorp, Aliwal North, Zastron, Mohale's Hoek, Wepener, Dewetsdorp and Bloemfontein.

They encountered ferocious headwinds, tailwinds, sore backsides, the friendliness of Heidelberg (a stranger offered them accommodation at her holiday home in Struisbaai), a petrol attendant who thought the pipes they were sucking on was their oxygen, rain, thunder, lightning, an idyllic campsite in Zastron, the vibiness of Lesotho.
