Airlink to suspend flights between Pretoria <> Cape Town!

South African carrier Airlink will suspend its domestic service between Wonderboom Airport (PRY) in Pretoria and Cape Town International Airport (CPT) in Cape Town from 08 May 2018. According to the airline's CEO, Rodger Foster, the route has not developed as Airlink expected it would and has not become profitable. Until recently, the airline operated up to four daily return flights between Pretoria and Cape Town, using a combination of 83-seat Avro RJ85 and 37-seat Embraer ERJ135LR regional jets to deliver an effective full-service value proposition offering on the route. Customers holding confirmed tickets for travel after the 08 May 2018 will be re-booked on alternative flights with South African Airways between OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg and Cape Town, or offered a full refund.
