Airlink to Resume Polokwane Flights

Airlink, the independent regional airline, will resume scheduled air services to and from Polokwane from the 18th October 2021.

Services were disrupted earlier this year to enable the Polokwane Airport to upgrade its emergency services to comply with civil aviation regulatory requirements.

“The Johannesburg-Polokwane route is important for business travellers and plays a crucial role in supporting Limpopo’s economy. We are looking forward to resuming our regular flights, which we will serve up to three times a day,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.

Flights to and from Polokwane are timed to provide travellers with convenient connections with Airlink’s domestic and regional flights through its Johannesburg hub at O.R. Tambo International Airport.

Airlink’s modern and efficient Embraer ERJ jets will be used to operate the Polokwane service.
