Airlink confirms that it will increase the frequency of its service between Johannesburg and Pemba, Northern Mozambique in response to market demand.
From 24 September 2019 Airlink will add a Tuesday flight to its weekly schedule. Flights depart Johannesburg at 10.10 and arrive in Pemba at 13.00 and depart Pemba at 13.30 arriving in Johannesburg at 16.25.
The additional flight will complement Airlink’s current schedule which operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays operating one of Airlink’s Embraer ERJ135 37 seat regional jets.
The Pemba destination has been seeing increasing interest following the significant gas finds offshore in the Mozambican channel north of Pemba.
A number of new hotel properties have opened in the region to serve both the growing leisure and the gas/oil industry. Pemba is also the gateway for tourists wishing to visit the Quirimbas Archipelago. (AT)
