Independent airline Airlink will operate under its own 4Z flight code with effect from 11 June.
Selling seats on flights under the 4Z flight code will enable Airlink to develop more routes and frequencies on an independent basis, as well as extend opportunities to establish new agreements with leading international airlines.
Airlink and South African Airways have redefined their partnership by replacing their franchise agreement with a new commercial arrangement from 11 June 2020.
Customers holding SAA 083 tickets for flights after 10 June, who do not want to be re-accommodated, may apply to SAA for a refund or through other channels, such as the credit card issuer used for payment or insurance.
SAA refunds will be managed in line with its business rescue policies.
