Airlink has announced the suspension of air services on their Pietermaritzburg-Cape Town route. Since 6 February 2017, the Pietermaritzburg to Cape Town service has provided locally-based government officials, private sector businesses, industries and communities located in and around Pinetown, Kloof, Hillcrest, Howick and the Midlands, and leisure travellers, with a convenient direct service between Pietermaritzburg and the Mother City.
Airlink currently operates daily return flights on the route, using 37-seat Embraer ERJ135LR regional jet.
Unfortunately, according to Airlink, the route has not become profitable, and the airline has taken the decision to cease the service.
Customers holding confirmed tickets for travel after 29 September 2018 will be offered a full refund.
