Airlink connects you to Lubumbashi with direct flights from Johannesburg.


Lubumbashi is a large city in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where old colonial façades line the clean, wide streets. Situated along the mining region of the Copperbelt, the city is known for being the main industrial centre of the mining district in southeastern Congo, with copper and malachite mining being the primary industries in the city. Other large industries within Lubumbashi include printing, flour milling, and brewing.


Lubumbashi is loved for its relaxed atmosphere, and the local people have an invested interest in the appearance of the town, with the aim to create sustainable urban renewal using culture and creativity. From street performances to visual arts festivals, the city celebrates artisan work and is home to a vast amount of creativity. In addition to the many cultural and artistic organisations within the city, other attractions include a national museum, a Roman Catholic cathedral, the Society of Congo Historians, the Frederic Kibassa Maliba Stadium, and Lubumbashi Golf Club.


For your return journey, fly back to Johannesburg with Airlink and travel beyond to other key Airlink business or leisure destinations.
