Airlink today announced the suspension of flights between Johannesburg and Luanda following the decision by the Angolan government to close its borders to South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Eswatini, Zimbabwe and Tanzania.
“While we are disappointed on behalf of our customers who are being inconvenienced, we must respect the decision by the Angolan authorities. However, we look forward to resuming our regular service as soon as possible,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.
Airlink’s GSA in Angola is Gitu Kiame-Viagens at the Luanda Airport tel +244 932 430 052.
Airlink says it will be performing a number of repatriation flights, the first of which will operate on Tuesday November 30. The next will operate on Sunday December 5, and thereafter on Thursday and Sunday each week until the repatriation requirement has normalised.
