OTP: Airlink Emerges Most Punctual Airline in South Africa

Airlink has retained its top-ranking position as the most punctual South African carrier operating from all the Airports Company South Africa (ACSA)-operated airports.

According to ACSA’s latest statistics, Airlink achieved a 95.52% average on-time performance for 2022 measured across all the ACSA airports.

“We know that time is money for Airlink’s customers and our on-time performance is crucial when they rely on us for their business and leisure travel in the region, including those connecting with our flights to key destinations across Southern Africa and with long-haul flights operated by our various partner global carriers.   

Nevertheless, there is always room for improvement and we maintain a sharp focus on every aspect of our service to enhance our reliability and stay on time,” explained Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.

“Similarly, our air cargo customers, who typically send high-value but low volume items by air, depend on Airlink to carry their shipments to their markets on time and in pristine condition,” he added.

To be classified as “on-time”, departures and arrivals must occur within 15 minutes of their published schedule.

Airlink was also the top performer at each of the ACSA airports last year, with the following performances:

Bloemfontein: 95.24%

Cape Town Int’l: 95.72%

Durban King Shaka Int’l: 96.24%

East London: 96.25%

George: 95.89%

Johannesburg OR Tambo Int’l: 95.20%

Kimberley: 95.34%

Gqeberha: 96.87%

Upington: 95.08%

Established in 1992, Airlink is a private South African airline. With a fleet of more than 60 modern aircraft, Airlink currently flies to more than 45 destinations in 14 countries throughout 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.
