Airlink Repatriation Flights Between Johannesburg and Luanda
Airlink, the Southern African regional airline, will operate repatriation flights between Johannesburg and Luanda this Sunday, 05 December 2021, after receiving authorisation for them from the Angolan Government.
This follows Angola’s decision to close its borders to South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Botswana, Eswatini, Zimbabwe and Tanzania.

Customers in Angola should contact Airlink’s GSA, Gitu Kiame-Viagens at the Luanda Airport office on +244 932 430 052.
Airlink has applied to operate a number of repatriation flights to assist stranded people. Details of additional flights will be announced as and when Angola’s authorities grant permission for them.
