Muli Bwanji Malawi! We're launching new Lilongwe and Blantyre routes.

We will start operating flights between Johannesburg and both Lilongwe and Blantyre, Malawi from 23 September 2023.

Malawi becomes the 16th country to be included in Airlink’s comprehensive route network. Airlink will fly comfortable and efficient 37-seat Embraer Regional Jets on both new routes, which will operate three times a week.

“As the premier regional airline, Airlink sets out to provide travellers to and from Malawi with optimal connectivity through a wide choice of conveniently scheduled flights and connections within the region and, through our partners, to the rest of the world.

“In addition to supporting the revitalisation of tourism, Airlink’s new routes will also be able to play a key role in the current Malawi Growth and Development Strategy, which aims to diversify the economy and build a wealthy, self-reliant and industrialised middle-income country,” says Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.
