Qatar Airways has signed an interline agreement with Airlink that will provide its passengers with connectivity via Cape Town and Johannesburg to more than 20 regional destinations in Southern Africa and more than 25 domestic destinations within South Africa.

“We are confident that the relationship will deliver enhanced travel options to customers, given the designed interconnectivity that will be enabled at Johannesburg’s ORTIA and Cape Town International Airport. Airlink’s offering of connectable destinations includes most key points within Southern Africa such as Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, East London, Bloemfontein, Harare, Lusaka, Maputo, Gaborone and Windhoek, amongst many others,” said Airlink MD and CEO, Rodger Foster.
