Posted 14 October 2020 · Add Comment

Airlink has reconnected Mozambique and South Africa with the launch of its new scheduled passenger air service between Maputo and Johannesburg.

 

Today’s first Airlink return flight on the route follows the lifting of travel restrictions that curtailed travel between the neighboring countries while they both worked to successfully contain the spread of the Coronavirus.

 

“Airlink is proud and excited to be launching this brand new service and adding it to our growing Southern Africa route network.  It provides travellers with more choices, while also enabling crucial trade, business, tourism and family ties between two close regional markets.  Although we have begun flights to Maputo, we plan to add more Mozambican destinations to our schedule in the coming days,” said Airlink CEO, Rodger Foster.
