Airlink to re-start Durban, Bloemfontein flights

Airlink, Southern Africa’s premier airline, will reinstate direct flights between Durban and Bloemforntein from 26 February this year.

The service is part of Airlink’s strategy to expand its network of flights from Durban as a third hub with Bloemfontein joining Johannesburg, Gqeberha, Mbombela (Nelspruit) and Harare as directly-served destinations.

Airlink’s morning flights on the route will operate Monday to Friday and its late afternoon flights every day except Saturdays. Tickets for flights on the route are available already.

“Airlink’s direct service between the two cities is in response to increased calls for convenient and efficient connections that boost productivity for travellers on the route, especially from the business and legal communities’ sectors. This latest expansion of our comprehensive route network will promote economic activity between the two metropoles and their market catchment areas,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.

Flights on the route will be operated by modern and reliable Embraer Regional Jets. Airlink’s great value fares include a 20kg free economy class checked-in luggage allowance plus a 15kg sporting equipment allowance.

“Onboard, customers are treated to a complimentary snack and refreshments. Our comfortable cabins provide travellers with generous leg room and a choice of aisle or window seat – Airlink aircraft do not have middle seats,” said Foster.

Airlink flights are scheduled to provide convenient connections with its other domestic and regional services as well as with long-haul flights provided by our constellation of global airline partners.

Airlink serves these cities and other destinations within Africa as well as Madagascar and St Helena Island. It offers worldwide connections through its partners, which include many trusted and well-known inter-continental brands and its FlyNamibia franchise.

Airlink has a fleet of more than 70 modern jetliners achieving a 91.57% average on-time performance for the year to end-December 2023.
