Airlink reconnects Johannesburg to Windhoek

Posted 16 October 2020 · Add Comment

Airlink will launch daily direct air services reconnecting Johannesburg with Windhoek starting on 26 October.


This follows the relaxation of South Africa’s intra-Africa travel restrictions and Namibian Aeronautical Authorities acknowledging Airlink’s traffic rights and designation on the route.

Airlink also recently resumed scheduled services between Cape Town and Windhoek as well as between Johannesburg and Walvis Bay.

 

Air travel between the neighbouring countries was suspended under the lockdown while public health authorities worked to successfully contain the spread of the Coronavirus in their respective territories.

 

“We can’t wait to re-establish this important connection between South Africa’s and Namibia’s main economic hubs and enable all-important trade, business and tourism between what are two very closely connected markets,” said Airlink CEO, Rodger Foster.
