SA Airlink

sa-airlinkDuring the 80’s, the amalgamation of Magnum Airlines, City Air and Border Air established Link Airways. After the airline was liquidated in 1992 its two founders made a successful bid for the business and established SA Airlink that has developed into a first feeder network focusing on connecting regional centres and smaller towns throughout South Africa. In 1997 the airline formed an imperative alliance with South African Airways (SAA) and South African Express and is the largest regional independent airline in Southern Africa flying passengers to minor towns, cities and regional focal points than any other airline.

From its hub at OR Tambo, SA Airlink flies to nine African countries and a total of 35 destinations. Their fleet comprises Cessna 208B Jetstream 4100, ERJ 135-LR and BAe AVRO RJ85 aircrafts that carry more than a million passengers annually. Through SA Airlink’s alliance, travellers can conveniently connect with SAA and their Star Alliance Partner airlines including other carriers throughout Southern Africa and globally.

Affordable all inclusive fares are per person and one-way.
