The airline Airlink today reopened flights into Southern Africa, to add to those local flights that had already restarted earlier during lockdown. Kruger Park also said today that Skukuza Airport had opened to flights, and showed an Airlink plane landing.
“Today marks the first day of re-connecting our #FlyAirlink customers to Southern African destinations,” the airline said. Airlink said they would soon make announcements about renewed flights further north in Africa, to places like Luanda, Dar es Salaam, Entebbe and Lubumbashi, among others.
A few days into level 1 of the national lockdown, Skukuza Airport has opened its doors and are ready to get you landed in KNP for your bush dose. What better way to do this either than through the #JerusalemaChallenge. #LiveYourWild pic.twitter.com/kRQYEqEzjq
