Airlink will re-introduce services between Johannesburg and Nosy Be (Madagascar), commencing 20 March 2016.
Flights will operate weekly with a single return flight on Sundays. Initially the route will be serviced with an Embraer ERJ 135 regional jet aircraft, and as soon as demand justifies, an Avro RJ85 whisper quad jet will be deployed.
The flight will depart on Sundays at 09h30 from O.R. Tambo International Airport and arrive at Nosy Be at 14h00. The return flight will depart Nosy Be at 14h45 and arrive in Johannesburg at 18h45. (All local times quoted)
Due to the flight duration and prevailing headwinds, the aircraft will perform an en-route technical fuel stop in Vilanculos (Mozambique) on its way to Johannesburg.
