Following the re-introduction of the COVID related road travel curfews by Government between 21h00 and 04h00 with the additional requirement for passengers to arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to departure to complete travel documentation formalities, Airlink has received numerous requests from customers to adjust our departure times a little later. to reduce the associated inconvenience of an 03:00 am start to their travel days.

Accordingly, Airlink’s flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town will depart at 07h10 arriving in Cape Town at 09h20. The flight from Cape Town will depart at 07h20 arriving in Johannesburg at 09h25 Mondays to Saturdays. On Saturdays, the flight will depart Johannesburg at 10h15 arriving in Cape Town at 12h35.
