Airlink to Resume Johannesburg-George Flights

Airlink, the independent Southern African regionalairline, will resume air services between Johannesburg and George from 11 August. 

The morning flights, which are open for sale, will operate on Monday, Wednesday,Thursday and Friday and will run this month and seasonally during December and January.

“The suspension of services on the route by two other local airlines, provides an opportunity for Airlink to offer customers travelling between Gauteng and the Garden Route, our convenient, reliable and premium service,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster. 

Airlink’s modern Embraer E-jet aircraft will operate the route. Airlink’s cabin configuration on the E-jet guarantees customers either a window or an aisle seat - there are no middle seats – with a generous seat pitch and leg-room. Airlink customers are also entitled to a complimentary 20kg checked luggage and 15kg checked sporting equipment allowance, which is perfect for golfers and surfers taking advantage of the Garden Route’s worldfamous courses, beaches and other outdoor recreational attractions.

The flights are also ideally-timed for customers travelling onward to Airlink’s other business and leisure destinations in South Africa and throughout Southern Africa such as Cape Town, Windhoek, Walvis Bay, Victoria Falls, Harare, the Okavango Delta, among many others.

  • 4Z 692 departing George at 09h30, arriving at Johannesburg at 11h15
