Airlink will be flying three times a week and Chief Executive Officer, Rodger Foster, says plans are in place to increase the frequency once demand grows.

“We assure Malawians of safe travel, but most importantly we want to provide the convenience for business people and tourism coming to this beautiful country,” said Foster.

Malawi Minister of Transport, Jacob Hara, said Airlink has brought good competition to ticket pricing .

Hara however, warned the new airline against laxity.

“We welcome you to ply business in Malawi, and let us assure you that as government we continue to create that conducive environment to attract more airlines to come.

Let me also warn you that we won’t accept laxity in meeting regulatory requirements on safety among others,” said Jacob Hara.

Airlink boasts of 60 aircrafts and 85 thousand flights to various destinations annually.

Malawi is Airlink’s 15th destination country.
