AIRLINK CONNECTS SOUTH AFRICA AND TANZANIA THREE TIMES A WEEK
(Posted 02nd December 2020)
Airlink’s CEO Rodger Foster, on the launch of flights to Tanzania’s commercial capital of Dar es Salaam, said: ‘Airlink is excited looking forward to 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‘.
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.
The new services to and from Dar es Salaam 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.
