New Airlink route launching soon in South Africa

 ·15 Feb 2024

Airlink has announced a new route from Mbombela (formerly Nelspruit) to Johannesburg, and Mozambique will be launching in July 2024.

Airlink will provide its peak season “bush & beach” service linking Mbombela’s Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport with Vilanculos, Mozambique’s famous coastal resort destination and Johannesburg, the airline said in a media statement.

The direct service will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from 1 July 2024 until 5 January 2025. Flights on the route will be operated by modern and reliable Embraer Regional Jets.

Airlink noted that tickets for flights on the route are already available. The seasonal route will augment Airlink’s year-round daily direct Johannesburg-Vilanculos service.

“In reprising this routing option for the coming season, Airlink is responding to broad popular demand from tourists and calls from the travel industry for a convenient schedule that lets visitors make the most of their vacation time and enjoy both uniquely Southern African experiences,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.

Mbombela is the gateway to the world-famous Kruger National Park, neighbouring private game lodges, and spectacular vistas such as God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck, the Three Rondavels and several waterfalls.

Vilanculos is a popular beach holiday destination and gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago.

It is renowned for its spectacular beaches, marine life, restaurants, various accommodation options, markets for fresh produce, and arts and crafts.
