Dubai’s Emirates has entered into an interline agreement with South Africa’s Airlink carrier.

Emirates customers will now have access to more than 25 domestic destinations in South Africa and over 20 regional destinations in Southern Africa, via Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Emirates and Airlink will offer single-ticket travel and one-stop baggage check-in for customers transferring from Johannesburg and Cape Town to domestic points including Bloemfontein, George, Upington, Nelspruit, Hoedspruit and Port Elizabeth, as well as points across Southern Africa like Gaborone, Kasane, Vilanculos, Maun, Victoria Falls, Maputo, Windhoek, Harare, Lusaka, Ndola, Bulawayo and Livingstone, among others.

Customers can book their travel with both airlines on the Emirates website, as well as through travel agents.

“”Emirates is pleased to partner with Airlink on a new interline agreement that will help us strengthen our presence and give customers more choice, flexibility and enhanced connections across 45 cities in Southern Africa. We are committed to our operations in South Africa, as we continue to look at ways to build our extended network for customers, and help them benefit with diverse travel options,” said Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline.
