Airlink Reconnects Johannesburg with Richards Bay


Airlink today resumed scheduled services between Johannesburg and Richards Bay with the first flight having touched down at the coastal town’s airport this morning.


The reinstatement of Airlink’s daily flights comes after an enforced 20-month hiatus, during which Richards Bay Airport secured the necessary resources to accommodate scheduled airline operations in compliance with international-standard civil aviation safety requirements.


“Richards Bay plays a crucial role in KwaZulu-Natal’s industrial and trade mix and Airlink’s flights connect the coal terminus town and the businesses it hosts to other markets and economic centres. By doing so, Airlink is enhancing Richard Bay’s competitiveness and its attractiveness as a modern, efficient industrial destination for trade, investment and job creation.


We have looked forward to welcoming Richards Bay customers back onboard and, with the necessary support and service from Airports Company South Africa, the City of uMhlathuze and the Provincial Government, we will be able to play our part in developing the local economy,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.


With the resumption of flights on the route, Airlink is re-connecting Richards Bay with the world with a choice of convenient connections to Airlink’s expansive network of domestic and regional destinations as well as those around the world through Airlink’s global airline partners.


Initially, Airlink will operate its 29-seat Jetstream 41 turboprop airliners on the Richards Bay flights, with a view to using larger jets once sufficient traffic volumes have been achieved on the route:

Airlink flights can be booked and managed on www.flyairlink.com, on the FlyAirlink app and through travel agents. 


Established in 1992, Airlink is Southern Africa’s independent and privately-owned premier airline. It currently flies to over 45 destinations in 13 countries in Southern Africa, Madagascar and St Helena Island.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
