Encore! More! George!
With demand for summer holiday travel picking up, Airlink has introduced midday Saturday and Sunday flights between Johannesburg and George, but will offer these on a daily basis from 11th December 2021.
The extra flights are in addition to the early morning and late afternoon services that Airlink introduced on the route at the start of this month.
“The combination of local summer holiday demand and the uptick in international visitors to the country have set the scene for travel and tourism to flourish along the Garden Route, with its attractive and popular esorts, facilities and attractions. With the extra flights, Airlink is able to provide the required capacity to meet this increased demand,” explained Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.
Domestic, Regional and long-haul customers travelling to and from George will be able to take full advantage of our conveniently scheduled onward connections with Airlink and its global airline partners, through our Johannesburg hub,” he added.
Airlink operates its modern Embraer E-Jets on the route. Customers have a choice of comfortable window or aisle business class and economy seats (there are no “middle” seats on any Airlink aircraft).
Airlink also offers flights between George and Cape Town
