Airlink reconnects with more destinations

Can you believe that it’s already been over a year since the declaration of the national state of disaster, followed by the level 5 lockdown that resulted in mandatory isolation and the resultant “cabin fever” that brought a heightened appreciation of the “freedom” that we always took for granted? The lockdown forced the closure of airline businesses. Re-starting an airline that took a lifetime to build isn’t easy and getting back to where we were before the pandemic requires commitment, agility, and absolute tenacity – as well as customers keen and ready to maximise their pent-up yearning to travel as soon as restrictions are lifted. We’re making good progress in that direction, adding more flights and re-introducing a number of destinations in April and May. This will help you to get to where you need to be, both within South Africa and across the sub-continent. Come and enjoy the new-found, deeply respected, freedom of the African sky with us!
