Airlink introduces further enhancements to its Johannesburg to Upington schedule
Following the recent announcement of the addition of a new morning flight, to be added to its schedule operating between Johannesburg and Upington, effective from 6 May 2013, Airlink is pleased to advise that it has also been able to retime its second flight of the day.
Whereas previously this flight used to depart OR Tambo at 09:20, this departure has been moved to 11:00. The re-timed flight will therefore provide additional connections with the later morning inbound international arrivals into OR Tambo, such as from Munich, other domestic arrivals from for example Port Elizabeth and East London, as well as regional flights from neighbouring countries such as Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
In addition Airlink will also be adding capacity on its Friday afternoon flights with the application of an 83 seat Avro RJ Regional Jet aircraft.
With the increased frequency of up to three flights per day, enhanced connectivity with domestic, regional and international flights, coupled with the increased capacity on Fridays, Airlink’s schedule has been optimised in-line with growing demand for travel to the region.
Over the years air travel to Upington has continued to grow thanks to increased investment in agriculture and mining, the Square Kilometre Array development, the Solar Power project and additional growth in tourism not only to Upington but also to the neighbouring Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and Namibian wild life regions.
Airlink is proud to have been able to have been able to participate in this growth to the benefit of all stakeholders.
