“Airlink is excited looking forward to re-establishing direct services between the two countries - and flying our brand new colours – on what will be our newest route.   Dar es Salaam and Johannesburg share very special historical, political and economically vital commercial bonds as gateways for trade, commerce, business travel  and tourism in Tanzania and South Africa,” said Airlink CEO, Rodger Foster.

 

The two countries have been without direct air connectivity since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and imposition of travel restrictions, which are currently being relaxed.
