AirLink reopens flights between Antananarivo and Johannesburg

AirLink has resumed flights to Antananarivo in Madagascar, after a temporary suspension due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The airline serviced its first flight to the Malagasy destination yesterday (after the resumption) from its Johannesburg-OR Tambo hub.

The resumed service provides a crucial air link for business travelers and tourists, allowing them to fly between the two countries with ease and convenience.

AirLink will increase the number of its frequencies on this route to three per week from mid-February.
Initially, the private air carrier will operate one flight every Monday before increasing to three weekly routes within two weeks using its Embraer 170 (6+68) with departures offered every Monday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 10:00 a.m. (arrival at 2:10 p.m.). Return flights are scheduled on the same days at 3:00 p.m. (arrival at 5:40 p.m.).

The resumption of flights to Antananarivo is in addition to several other important decisions that the private airline has taken to regain its pre-pandemic level and improve its traffic. AirLink has already announced the signing of a codeshare agreement with several major international airlines including United Airlines in the United States Emirates and Qatar Airways.
