Airlink regrets the suspension of its Phalaborwa services with effect from 10th June 2020.
Fortunately Hoedspruit is only 75km away from Phalaborwa and Airlink offers convenient services between Hoedspruit and OR Tambo International Airport and from Cape Town International Airport. Kruger Park Shuttle Services (KPSS) now offers a private, business class road shuttle services between Hoedspruit - Eastgate Airport and Phalaborwa Airport.
Airlink purchased the Phalaborwa airport in 1999 and immediately redeveloped the facilities in anticipation of promised tourism and hospitality infrastructure development in Northern Kruger National Park and Letaba Ranch that never materialized. While Phalaborwa and its surrounding areas have immense tourism potential and the Phalaborwa airport is perfectly positioned to catalyze this, the unfortunate reality is that not much has happened over the past twenty years. Should Phalaborwa become a Tourism growth focal point for the development of hospitality facilities within the central and Northern Kruger Park and the surrounding private game lodges, Airlink will be ready and willing to commit to the airport upgrade that will enable the resumption of scheduled air services at Phalaborwa.
The Phalaborwa airport will remain open for general aviation traffic from 11 June 2020 for the time being.
Kruger Park Shuttle is a Daily Businesses Class shuttle service between Johannesburg and Hoedspruit.
Once a busy mining area, now the gateway to Kruger as the only town on its borders, Ba-Phalaborwa is a unique enclave in Limpopo surrounded by protected areas.
Kruger Park Shuttle Services (KPSS) now connects you from Hoedspruit to Phalaborwa.
