Airlink will resume direct flights between Johannesburg and Nampula

From September 16, 2021, Airlink will restart direct flights between Johannesburg and Nampula

The proposal aims to boost trade, tourism, and air cargo between Mozambique‘s northern capital and South Africa‘s key commercial hub. 

The airline has begun accepting reservations for the route’s twice-weekly service. Due to the epidemic, the route was halted in March of last year.

Rodger Foster, CEO and Managing Director of Airlink, stated that the airline will contribute to the growth of commercial, trade, and economic links between South Africa and Mozambique by providing critical air connectivity. 

“Airlink is happy and excited to have the opportunity to support and serve businesses in this region, given Nampula’s strategic importance as northern Mozambique’s primary commercial centre for mining, agriculture, and tourism,” he said. 

So, what are the things to do in Nampula? The location lies 194 kilometers west and inland from the port towns of Nacala and Mozambique, and is known as Mozambique’s third-largest city. 

The new Banyan Tree Ilha Caldeira 5-star boutique and luxury beach villas on the private island of Ilha Caldeira, just off the coast and reachable by helicopter and light aircraft, are among the several hotels and luxury lodges in the region. 

Modern Embraer Regional Jet aircraft will run Airlink’s Johannesburg-Nampula service. Every Tuesday and Thursday, return flights will be available. 

Flight 4Z 230 takes off from Johannesburg at 10.30 a.m. and arrives in Nampula at 13:00 p.m. Nampula-Johannesburg flight 4Z 231 departs at 13.35 p.m. and arrives at 16.15 p.m.
