Muli Bwanji Malawi: Airlink Spreads Wings to Lilongwe and Blantyre


Airlink, Southern Africa’s premier airline, will start operating scheduled flights between Johannesburg and both Lilongwe and Blantyre, Malawi. Johannesburg-Lilongwe route will commence on 4 September, while Johannesburg-Blantyre service will start on 5 September.


When launched, Malawi will become 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,” explained Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.


Sustainable wildlife and tourism are vital to Malawi’s economy. The country is often referred to as “the warm heart of Africa” and was crowned as one of Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel Top Countries in 2022. Tourist attractions include Lake Malawi (Africa’s third-largest, which is more like an inland sea), wildlife, adventure and its rich cultural heritage. 


Flights on the new routes will operate at these times and days of the week from 4 September 2023:

Customers can book and manage their trips on flyairlink.com, Airlink’s smartphone app or through travel agents.


Onboard


Airlink’s great value fares on the Embraer Regional Jet flights include a 20kg free luggage allowance. Onboard, customers are treated to a complimentary light meal, refreshments, generous leg room and a choice of aisle or window seat (the aircraft do not have middle seats).

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

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.
