LATEST TRAVEL NEWS AND UPDATES
Spreading our wings to Nairobi
We are spreading our wings with a new daily Johannesburg-Nairobi service, which will see it become the first private sector airline to offer flights on the route from 24 April 2023. We will provide much-needed competition and additional choices for business and leisure travellers. Kenya becomes the 15th country in Airlink’s comprehensive sub-Saharan route network and its third in East Africa. The service will be operated with Airlink’s comfortable and efficient state-of-the-art 98-seat Embraer E190 jetliners.
Flights to Madagascar Resume
The resumption of flights linking Johannesburg with Antananarivo follows the lifting of Madagascar’s COVID-19 travel restrictions and its subsequent ban on air services to and from South Africa.
Departing South Africa
Travellers departing South Africa to a regional destination are required to confirm the regulations with the relevant authorities prior to departure.
Passengers (even in transit) are responsible for all required travel documents. Some countries require a passport to be valid for up to six months beyond the date of return and require one or more Visa unused pages available in the passport.
Make sure that you have all the necessary documentation as the airline cannot take any responsibility for this. For these details, it is advised to contact the embassy, consulate or other relevant body of the country you are going to.
Passenger Travel Documents
Entry is always at the discretion of immigration officials. If not travelling immediately, double check document requirements prior to travel. Airlink is entitled to take photocopies of your documents. Airlink will not be liable to the Passenger if the Passenger does not have all travel documents needed for the journey.
Right to Passage
We will not refund to the Passenger the fare paid for carriage to the airport where the passenger was refused entry. At the Airline’s request, the passenger is obliged to reimburse the Airline in full for the amount of any fine or other costs, if the Passenger has failed to comply with any regulations. The Passenger must allow security checks, searches and scans of your person. Airlink has the right to refuse carriage to the passenger.
Travel Documents for Domestic Travel
