Airlink to resume flights

Posted on 2 June 2020

Airlink will launch a limited scheduled domestic air service from Monday 8 June, with flights on the Johannesburg-Cape Town and Johannesburg-Durban routes, using 98-seat Embraer E190 regional jets.

This follows the implementation of South Africa’s COVID-19 Level 3 restrictions, which permits a three-phase resumption of domestic flights, based on the following:

– Phase 1, which came into effect 1 June and permits flights between Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

– Phase 2 will see some of the inland airports brought on-stream once the system has been stress-tested and proven.

– Phase 3 will enable services to the other coastal and inland cities.

The initial introductory schedule is as follows:

This schedule will be augmented with additional frequencies as from 15 June.

‘Together with the Airports Company South Africa, we are implementing all of the necessary effective sanitisation and distancing measures to stop the transmission of the COVID-19 virus while travelling on an Airlink flight.

‘While we are doing everything, we can to provide a safe and bio-secure environment, this system is only effective if travellers, airline and airport personnel practice good personal hygiene and social distancing etiquette:
