Virgin Atlantic partners with Airlink for more choice to Southern Africa
25 June 2021
We're excited to announce that we're partnering with Airlink (4Z) as an interline partner, so there are more choices to Southern Africa than ever before.
The launch of this partnership is ideally timed as we resume operating our three times weekly return passenger flights from London Heathrow - Johannesburg from 24 June 2021 and Johannesburg - London Heathrow from 26 June 2021.
Customers will be able to connect onward to a multitude of destinations within South Africa as well as onward to another ten countries across Southern Africa, including Zimbabwe , Namibia & Botswana. Airlink are the only airline that fly to the British Overseas Territory Saint Helena; this island in the South Atlantic was only accessible by a five day sea voyage until 2017 and customers can now connect there year round from Johannesburg and during the southern summer season from Cape Town.
Flights with Airlink are on sale immediately.
We look forward to welcoming our mutual customers on board soon. In the meantime, thank you for the incredible partnership you have shown us.
