AirLink seamlessly connects Kruger and Livingstone

Following an enthusiastic response from research conducted at the Travel Indaba amongst the trade, Airlink has pleasure in confirming that it will begin operating a new route from Kruger to Livingstone as from 17 August. Airlink’s service will operate directly from Nelspruit Kruger to Livingstone. Initially Airlink will operate this service on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, with the intention to grow frequency to correspond with demand.

The new route will allow travellers to enjoy the convenience of a direct flight between two of Africa’s most sought after destinations. This will avoid the current need for Kruger travellers to stay overnight or connect in Johannesburg prior to flying to Livingstone. The opportunity is then for travellers to enjoy a game drive and breakfast at their bush lodge before travelling to Livingstone and enjoying, on the same day, an evening sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. The return travellers, Livingstone/Kruger, can enjoy a walk to the falls in the morning, breakfast and midmorning activities before travelling to Kruger to enjoy dinner and first night in the bush. Travellers will be able to get to bed early in order to be ready for an early game drive the next day.
