Airlink has announced the further suspension of its service between Johannesburg and Nosy Be, Madagascar, up until 27 June 2021.
“We regret the impact this will have for those customers already holding confirmed bookings for the April Easter holidays. Unfortunately despite multiple efforts from the lodges on Nosy Be, the Nosy Be Tourism Authority and Ravinala Airports, we have to date been unable to obtain certainty as to when Madagascar intends to reopen its borders for regional travel. Accordingly this leaves us with no option but to cancel our
planned flights on the route in the interim. Customers holding tickets will be able to rebook on a future flight at no additional cost,” said Airlink Managing Director and CEO, Rodger Foster.
“From the multiple engagements we have had with the Malagasy authorities, we are hopeful that the borders will re-open in time for Airlink to resume services for the June/July peak South African holiday season, followed by the August – October period which coincides with the return of the whale sharks to the island which is a exciting feature of any visit to the island.” he added.
