Fly Airlink - Freedom of the African Sky

About Airlink

Privately owned South African Airlink was restyled in 1995 from a history book dating back to the formation of Midlands Aviation in 1967 incorporating Lowveld Aviation Services, Magnum Airways, Border Air, Citi Air and Link Airways. The airline has developed into South Africa's first feeder network, specifically aimed at linking the smaller towns, the regional centres and hubs throughout South Africa.

In 1997 SA Airlink joined SAA and SA Express in a powerful strategic alliance which led to the establishment of the leading aviation network in Africa.

Today, Airlink flies to more local destinations than any other airline, operating over 3500 flights per month in servicing more than 25 destinations in Southern Africa. Airlink, having standardised their fleet, became the 3rd largest Jetstream 41 operator in the world.

Our passenger profile represents 30% leisure and 70% business. Airlink carries over 65 000 passengers every month utilising a fleet of Jetstream 41 aircraft, ERJ 135 jet aircraft and BAe RJ85 aircraft.

Airlink successfully completed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) and were placed on the IATA Register on 6 February 2008. So you're assured of the highest possible standard of service whenever and wherever you fly Airlink.

Inflight Magazine

inflight magazine airlink

Skyways is Airlink’s exclusive in-flight magazine, published by Panorama Publications and aims to provide passengers on Airlink flights with reading material that is interesting, thought-provoking and absorbing. We put together a mix of articles which will offer something of interest to every passenger. In each issue, we cover at least one topic which is pertinent and often controversial, and for those who want relaxation rather than stimulation while in the air, we offer gorgeous travel features, health features, fun articles and loads of fascinating tidbits. Our aim is to make Skyways the best read in the air! In this issue we bring you a look at some good reasons to visit Mozambique's northern coast.
