Airline has been making some significant changes regarding the types of aircrafts servicing their Southern African routes.
Johannesburg - Kasane Route
Business class seats will now be available on Airlink's E- Jet route between Johannesburg and Kasane. The flights will be operated by Embraer E190s, which is a newcomer on this route. The introduction of the E190 also means that flight capacity overall has increased for those flying to or from Kasane. The flights will now offer 6 business class seats in a 1-2 configuration and 92 economy seats in a 2-2 configuration. Window and aisle options are available for both classes.
Cape Town - Maun & Cape Town - Victoria Falls Routes
A new aircraft has been introduced to service the Cape Town - Maun and Cape Town - Victoria Falls routes, which will increase capacity for each flight as well as include business class seats. The routes were previously operated by a Embraer ERJ135 with only 37 seats. Airline will now use an AvroRJ regional jet, which will have 83 seats available. This will be effective from 4 June for the Cape Town - Maun route and 2 July for Cape Town - Victoria Falls.
Johannesburg - Ndola Route
As of 7 May, Airline has replaced the aircraft operating the Johannesburg - Ndola route. The route was previously serviced by a 83 seat Avro RJ85, but will now be serviced by a 74 seat E170.
