Airlink connects you to Upington with direct flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town.


Upington is situated on the banks of the Orange River and is known as the gateway to the Northern Cape’s renowned Kalahari Desert. It is an important South African commercial, agricultural and leisure location. Made fertile by the waters of that mighty Orange River which flows through the city, Upington is an oasis loved for its vineyards and orchards. Its hot summers lure water sport enthusiasts to it and its mild winters and serene atmosphere make it popular all through the seasons. It is close by to the Augrabies Falls National Park too.


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