Airlink, Southern Africa’s premier airline, will add more flights to Mbombela (formerly Nelspruit) and Bloemfontein effective 07 August 2023.

“In response to market demand, Airlink is increasing flights between certain key destinations for local and international business and leisure travel. By scaling up Airlink’s schedule on these routes we are giving customers more convenient choices and connections, which provides travellers with greater flexibility when planning their trips,” explained Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.

By adding an additional frequency, Airlink will operate a twice-daily return service between Cape Town and Mbombela (Nelspruit), six days a week.

An additional service between Johannesburg and Mbombela affords customers the opportunity to choose one of up to eight return flights per day.

Similarly, the addition of an extra flight between Johannesburg and Bloemfontein will increase the daily departures from three to four flights during the week and from two to three flights daily over the weekend:

The additional flights to and from both Johannesburg and Bloemfontein are scheduled for efficient connections with Airlink’s other domestic and regional services as well as the international long-haul flights operated by Airlink’s partner airlines.

The flights on these routes will be operated by Embraer Regional Jets. Airlink’s great value fares include a free 20kg economy class checked luggage allowance plus a free 15kg sporting equipment allowance.

Onboard, our customers are treated to a complimentary light meal, refreshments, comfort with generous leg room and a choice of aisle or window seat – our aircraft do not contain middle seats.
