SA Airlink Flights
SA Airlink have, for some reason, decided to have two websites where you can book flights with them. The first is www.saairlink.co.za and the second is www.flyairlink.com. Why they don’t combine the two we are not sure. SA Airlink is privately owned and was South Africa’s first feeder airline, which means that it focuses on linking various smaller areas to their larger counterparts. In South Africa, SAA Airlink fly to 25 destinations, more than any other airline. They have a strategic partnership with SAA, which means that the two airlines often offer each others flights to customers. In addition, by flying on SA Airlink you are still able to earn your SAA Voyager Miles.
SA Airlink Destinations and Routes
SA Airlink fly to, and from: Johannesburg, Polokwane, Phalabora, Nelspruit, Mafikeng, Kimberley, Pietermaritzberg, Upington, Bloemfontein, Durban, East London, Port Elizabeth, George, and Cape Town.
Apart from these domestic destinations, SA Airlink flies to many international/regional destinations within Africa, including Beira, Vilanculos, Harare, Lusaka, Ndola, Livingstone and Bulawayo etc. Before the low cost airlines like kulula and Mango started offering flights to Vic Falls and Zanzibar, SA Airlink was the only airline you could use to get there. Due to the routes that the airline flies, it mostly carries business travelers with leisure only making up 30% of it;s passengers.
