26 April 2023, Johannesburg – Airlink, Southern Africa’s premier, independent and privately owned regional airline, will launch flights between Mbombela (Nelspruit) and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, from 28 November 2023.

The new route will complement Airlink’s existing service between Mbombela’s Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) and Livingstone on the Zambian side of the world-famous waterfalls.

“The new service to Victoria Falls expands our direct connections between Southern Africa’s prime tourist attractions, i.e. the Kruger National Park and surrounds, Victoria Falls as well as Cape Town and the Garden Route. The new route provides travellers with a greater choice of itineraries using direct Airlink flights and without having to connect via Johannesburg,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.

To facilitate the new service, Airlink will adjust its KMIA-Livingstone flights to four per week.

The schedule will see the following flights being operated with modern Embraer regional jets:

Mbombela – Victoria Falls

4Z 476 departs KMIA 11.35 arrives Victoria Falls 13.25 Tue, Thu and Sat

4Z 477 departs Victoria Falls 14.00 arrives KMIA 15.40 Tue, Thu and Sat

Mbombela - Livingstone
