Mthatha Airport

Airlink notes and wishes to clarify media reports on the resumption of air services to Margate.

Whilst Margate and the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast are currently without a scheduled air service, Airlink has not set a date for the resumption of scheduled flights.  Airlink has expressed an interest to offer regular scheduled air services that would benefit business travellers and residents on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal within the Ray Nkonyeni Municipal precinct. 

Airlink is engaged in discussions and negotiations with various role-players, including the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality and the Margate Airport management, on a range of issues, which must first be clarified and addressed prior to scheduled air services being re-instated.  

Airlink will make further announcements in due course.
