Southern Africa’s premier airline, Airlink will be launching daily direct return flights between Johannesburg and Victoria Falls from 15 August 2022, with the aim of reconnecting the region’s main economic hub with the iconic tourism destination.
The move follows approvals by Zimbabwe’s and South Africa’s aeronautical authorities for the extension of Airlink’s already comprehensive services between the two markets to include the route between Johannesburg and Victoria Falls.
Airlink’s flights will operate daily using a modern 98-seat Embraer E-190 jetliner and are scheduled to conveniently connect with its other services to and from its Johannesburg main base as well as to long-haul flights provided by Airlink’s growing number of global partner airlines.
CEO and Managing Director at Airlink, Rodger Foster described Victoria Falls as a jewel in the region’s tourism crown and that the airline looks forward to re-establishing connectivity between the attraction and Johannesburg.
“This brand new Airlink route will be our second to Victoria Falls, which we already serve from Cape Town. In addition, we provide direct flights connecting Harare with Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban and between Bulawayo and Johannesburg. With the recent introduction of long-haul flights from Europe directly to Victoria Falls, our services allow customers arriving on those flights to conveniently include South African destinations in their travel plans,” Foster said.
Customers can book and manage Airlink journeys and find information about health and safety onboard Airlink flights on the website, Airlink’s smartphone app or through travel agents.
