Airlink said it will launch scheduled direct services between Durban and Harare from 05 April 2022.
The direct flights on the route will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. 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. Travel time is approximately 2hrs 10 min.
Rodger Foster, Airlink CEO and Managing Director stated: “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 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.”
Airlink said it will operate one of its modern Embraer ERJ135 Regional Jets 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 and refreshments. Our cabins are designed for comfort with generous legroom and a choice of aisle or window seats – Airlink aircraft do not have middle seats.
