Airlink launches new route to connect South Africa and DRC
Airlink, the privately-owned and independent regional airline, will connect South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) when it launches its new scheduled passenger flights between Johannesburg and Lubumbashi on 30 November 2020.
Rodger Foster, Airlink CEO said: “Airlink is looking forward to establishing direct services – and flying our brand new colours – between the region’s important mining and minerals centres and supporting commerce, trade and tourism between the two countries.”
Airlinks's services to and from Lubumbashi will provide travelers with seamless connectivity onto Airlink’s new direct flights linking Johannesburg with Cape Town and with Durban. Connections are also available to Airlink’s other South African destinations, such as Port Elizabeth, East London, Bloemfontein and others. Airlink is rebuilding and expanding its network with the resumption and addition of services to destinations throughout the SADC region, all reachable with Airlink connections via its hub at Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport.
