The new service, which will start on 26 May 2021, strengthens the vital commercial connection between South Africa and Zambia provided by Airlink by augmenting Airlink’s daily services between its Johannesburg home base and Zambia’s capital, Lusaka, and the copper-belt’s hub, Ndola.

 

Airlink will also resume its Nelspruit-Livingstone service from 01 May 2021.  This will enable travellers to visit the Victoria Falls as well as the Kruger Park and their surrounds while also connecting on to Airlink’s South African destinations such as Cape Town and Durban

 

“There is pent-up demand among local and international travellers to visit our region, which is home to some of the world’s most spectacular sights and destinations.  With COVID-19 vaccination programmes ramping up in some of our traditional markets, we are seeing the first signs of light after a devastating 2020.  Our Livingstone flights together with our recently-launched mainline South African domestic services, put some of the region’s key tourist destinations within easy and convenient reach,” said Airlink CEO and managing director, Rodger Foster.

 

“With our modern fleet and strict compliance with bio-safety measures, Airlink is able to support the safe revival of tourism and the increased economic activity it stimulates in Zambia,” he added.
