Emirates signs interline agreement with Airlink

Emirates and Airlink have announced an interline agreement, widening Emirates’ reach into Southern Africa as countries begin opening their borders for travellers.

An interline agreement is a relationship between airlines which allows one airline to sell services to a customer that are provided by another airline. Airlines use interline agreements to sell itineraries that they would otherwise not be able to serve alone.

Emirates’ agreement with Airlink will provide customers enhanced connectivity via gateways in Johannesburg and Cape Town to more than 25 domestic destinations in South Africa and more than 20 regional destinations in Southern Africa. The unique connections enabled by this new partnership provides customers onward travel options not offered by other airlines.

Emirates and Airlink will offer the ease of 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.
