Ulendo Airlink has launched daily flights between Lilongwe and Blantyre in Malawi. From today (16 Sept 2013) the airline operates an early morning shuttle service between the two destinations. Flights from Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe to Chileka Airport in Blantyre depart at 07:15am and arrive at 08:00am. The return flights depart Blantyre at 08:30am with a scheduled arrival time in Lilongwe of 09:15. The route provides opportunity for tourists travelling to Malawi to cover what would otherwise be a 6 hour drive, in just 45 minutes. In case the market demand for flights between Lilongwe and Blantyre is increasing, Ulendo Airlink is considering to introduce additional afternoon and evening flights as well as a larger aircraft.
Ulendo Airlink is the aviation division of Malawi's Ulendo Travel Group, a local company, which has been operating in the regional tourism and travel industry for over 16 years.
