Airlink and Safair announce plans to unite

AIRLINK and Safair have announced plans to unite under the umbrella of a new Airlink Group of companies.

An application for approval will be made to the Competition Commission tomorrow (Tuesday, Nov 28), and a decision is expected in the first quarter of 2018.

The plan is for Airlink to purchase Safair in its entirety. However, the plan is for both Airlink and FlySafair and Safair’s other businesses, including its humanitarian aid flights, to continue to operate separately under their own brands. The airlines also plan to retain their respective products, aircraft fleets, management and leadership teams.  No job losses are foreseen.
