Johannesburg-Kasane flights will operate initially on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Flights will be operated by an Embraer 37-seat ERJ 135 regional jet. Daily services will be introduced in August.

Johannesburg-Vilanculos will operate initially on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Tuesday and Saturday flights will be added in July. Operations will initially be on a 29-seat Jetstream 41 turboprop aircraft and, as the route develops, this will be upgraded to Embraer ERJ 135LR regional jet aircraft.

The inclusion of these two new regional routes brings Airlink's route network to a total of 31 destinations serviced.
