In order to enhance your travel booking experience, Airlink has established comprehensive preferred carrier relationships with a vast network of travel agents and tour operators.
Airlink is a privately-owned regional airline serving a comprehensive network of smaller destinations throughout Southern Africa. We are now operating independently under our own unique 4Z flight code offering more freedom, more choices and more travel opportunities.
When you see the sunbird icon on our aircraft, think Airlink. You’ll know that you’re travelling with Southern Africa’s largest (measured by flight movements) independent airline. Airlink has more than 50 commercial jetliners operating throughout Southern Africa. Last year we carried 2 million customers on more than 63 000 flights, on 55 routes to 39 destinations in nine African countries and St Helena Island.
Airlink’s on time performance is consistently better than 95% and this is a clear indication of our determination and commitment to remain synonymous with customer centricity, punctuality, service excellence, and reliability. Airlink is proudly the most on time South African airline as measured by the Airports Company of South Africa.
Feel Safe When You Fly Airlink
The safety and well-being of our customers, employees and aircraft is our top priority. Together with the operators of all airports within our domestic network, we have implemented all the necessary effective sanitization and distancing measures to mitigate the transmission of the COVID-19 virus throughout the service delivery value chain. Our E-Jet aircraft are equipped with High Efficiency Particulate Air Filters, which are effective at blocking 99.97% of particulates, including Coronavirus molecules. These filters help to continually sterilize the air in our cabins, which is renewed entirely every three minutes. To read more click on www.skywaysmagazine.co.za/airflow/.

Airlink Resumes Services, new routes and more
The lockdown at midnight on 26th March was tough on many sectors of the economy, especially airlines. However, Airlink welcomes the ability to provide limited air services under level 3 of the lockdown easing program. We commenced services between Johannesburg and Cape Town on 15 June 2020, and on Monday 6 July 2020 we reinstated services between Johannesburg and Bloemfontein, Nelspruit KMIA, Upington and Pietermaritzburg as well as between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. We also introduced a new service between Cape Town and Bloemfontein. On 13 July we will be adding services between Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth. All our current services are specifically aimed at satisfying the needs of our business travel customers.
In the next few weeks we are expecting more airports to be approved by the Minister of Transport. Many of these are destinations served by Airlink, including; Kimberley, Mthatha, Polokwane, Richards Bay, Hoedspruit, Sishen as well as George which Airlink serves from Cape Town.
As the lockdown easing program permits leisure travel and as and when our national borders are re-opened, Airlink will hasten to amend our schedule to accommodate the needs of all of our customers.
