Airlink Resumes Complimentary Meals and Drinks Service on Domestic Flights
Meals and drinks will once again be served on Airlink’s domestic flights from this Wednesday, 27 October 2021, following the withdrawal of restrictions under South Africa’s COVID-19 bio-security regulations.
“Airlink, which last year expanded its operations to include main domestic routes, welcomes Government’s decision to lift the ban on in-flight catering on domestic flights. It means we can once again provide Airlink customers with our complimentary, fresh and tasty food and beverage services,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.
In addition to operating on the main Johannesburg - Cape Town route, Airlink operates domestic flights to Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Gqeberha, East London, Mthatha, George, Polokwane, Kimberley, Upington, Bloemfontein, Sishen, Hoedspruit, Skukuza and Nelspruit.
