Starting April 11, Airlink will introduce additional morning departures to Ndola, Zambia, on Mondays and Wednesdays.

In a statement, the airline said the new flights were in addition to its current daily Ndola service, which departs at 09h45.

The additional capacity has been introduced in response to market demand from Johannesburg-based travellers who wanted to arrive earlier in Zambia, thereby extending their business day and week.

According to the airline the earlier return flights will also provide additional connections with the departures of Airlink, SAA and Star Alliance partners’ flights throughout Southern Africa and the world.

Flights will depart Johannesburg at 07h10, arriving in Ndola at 09h20, with return flights departing Ndola at 09h55, arriving in Johannesburg at 12h10.

The new flights will be operated by Airlink’s 37-seat Embraer ERJ 135 regional jets. Airlink recently increased its fleet to nine Embraer ERJ 135s and operates a combined fleet of 30 passenger and cargo aircraft.
