Air Link has already connected Johannesburg and Luanda for the first time

Airlink, a private regional airline in southern Africa, this Thursday inaugurated its air service between Johannesburg and Luanda. The route, which links the main economic centers of South Africa and Angola, will be operated three times a week.


The two countries are thus closer together through an Embraer E-190 jet with a capacity for 98 passengers and with convenient connections to Airlink's network of destinations, both in South Africa and elsewhere in the region.

“Our brand new route is a perfect example of how air services will make it possible for our two countries – with our different cultures – to pursue the common goal of creating commercial opportunities and diversifying our economies. sustainable business and leisure activities will play a decisive role in this reality," says the airline, in a statement sent to VerAngola.

For the President of the Executive Committee of Airlink, Rodger Foster, flights on this route will offer greater choice and flexibility to customers who need to travel or wish to transport goods between the two countries. "This fosters competition and, at the same time, reduces the costs of doing business for our customers," said the official.

The company's policy includes a 20 kg free baggage allowance, even in economy class, and a 15 kg allowance for sports equipment.

On board, passengers are entitled to a light meal and free refreshments, and can choose the place where they want to travel.

Flights take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Flight 4Z 044 leaves Johannesburg at 9:40 am and arrives in Luanda at 12:25 pm while flight 4Z 045 leaves Luanda at 1:25 pm and arrives in Johannesburg at 6:00 pm.
