Airlink has appointed AVIAREPS as its General Sales Agents (GSA) in Latin America to promote its convenient schedule of flights which serve an unparalleled network of routes currently connecting 45 destinations throughout Southern Africa.
AVIAREPS will represent and raise Airlink’s brand visibility in the three new markets, Ecuador, Peru and Panama and will support the airline’s drive to increase its share of inbound travel to Southern Africa from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia and Mexico, where Airlink already enjoys a presence.
“South America represents a significant market, not just for Airlink, but for businesses, entrepreneurs and leisure travellers. South-South economic activity is increasing, including trade, investments in mining and manufacturing, commerce and tourism. With our reach, choices of routes, service and reliability, Airlink is ideally-suited to support everyone who wants to explore and take full advantage of the opportunities that exist on both sides of the South Atlantic,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.
Airlink has an established relationship with AVIAREPS in the European and African region representing Airlink. I too look forward to continuing working with Aviareps, said Airlink Sales and Marketing Executive Manager.
‘We are delighted to have been selected by Airlink, which is an important and dynamic carrier, to support it with our GSA services. This new partnership will add value to our firm and we look forward to working closely with Airlink to increase its penetration in these Latin American markets,” said Marcelo Kaiser, Chief Operating Officer of AVIAREPS.
Airlink was established in 1992 and is an independent, privately-owned, premier airline. Choice and reliability are Airlink hallmarks, with the airline currently serving more than 45 destinations in 14 countries throughout Southern Africa, Madagascar* and St Helena Island.
Airlink has consistently been South Africa’s most on-time airline over the last two years, with its fleet of more than 60 modern jetliners achieving a 96.14% average on-time performance for the year to date**. Airlink is an International Air Transport Association (IATA) member and accredited under its safety audit programme.
