Posted 8 February 2021 · Add Comment

Airlink will resume scheduled air services between Johannesburg and Sishen in the Northern Cape from 15 February 2021.

 

The route is being relaunched to provide vital air connectivity to the crucial iron ore mining centre. 

“Airlink recognises the strategically important role that Sishen plays in our economy both as a mining town and sustaining jobs in the Northern Cape province, but also in generating valuable foreign revenue for South Africa through exports of iron ore.  We look forward to resuming our role in supporting Sishen and its community.  We will commence with four return flights a week and we will add frequencies as demand on the route picks up,” said Airlink CEO and managing director, Rodger Foster.
