Airlink to launch direct Durban-Harare flights in April

Leading regional privately-owned commercial airline, Airlink, has reported thast it will launch scheduled direct services between Durban and Harare, beggining 5 April 2022.

According to the South African headquartered air service, the direct flights on the route will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

The airline says flights from Durban’s King Shaka International Airport depart at 10.30, landing at 12.40 at Harare’s Robert Mugabe International Airport. The return service leaves from Harare at 13.20, touching down in Durban at 15.35.

Airlink added that travel time is approximately 2hrs 10 min.

The CEO and Managing Director for the air service, Rodger Foster (pictured above) said Harare and Durban are important commercial centres and key Airlink markets.


“This brand new route linking the two cities will be our third direct service to Zimbabwe’s capital, along with our flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town. We are certain that the new service will promote commerce and tourism between the cities and between the KwaZulu-Natal and Zimbabwe. Having non-stop flights on the route means greater convenience and options for travellers who want to save time and avoid connecting at Johannesburg,” Foster said.

He said Airlink will operate one of it’s modern Embraer ERJ135 Regional Jet on the route.

Fares include a 20kg free economy class checked-in luggage allowance plus a 15kg sporting equipment allowance.

Onboard, customers are treated to a complimentary light meal, refreshments. Our cabins are designed for comfort with generous leg room and a choice of aisle or window seats – Airlink aircraft do not have middle seats.
