Airlink, the South African domestic and regional international carrier, announced on Monday afternoon that it would resume its scheduled flights to Richards Bay, on Tuesday morning. This follows the reinstatement of approval for the Richards Bay airport’s fire and rescue service, by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA).

Flights were suspended on Friday when the SACAA downgraded the airport, owing to issues regarding its fire and rescue service.

The airline operates flights between Johannesburg and Richards Bay at least once a day (each way), every day, but usually more often than that. The flight that operates every day of the week from Johannesburg to Richards Bay is coded 4Z 883 and departs Johannesburg at 11h00, arriving in Richards Bay at 12h00. The return flight is coded 4Z 884 and leaves Richards Bay at 12h40 and arrives in Johannesburg at 13h55.

Flight 4Z 885 operates from Johannesburg to Richards Bay five days a week, namely Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. The flight departs at 15h50 and arrives in Richards Bay at 16h50. The return flight is coded 4Z 886, and leaves Richards Bay at 17h30, and arrives in Johannesburg at 18h45.

Finally, flight 4Z 881 operates from Johannesburg to Richards Bay on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. It leaves Johannesburg at 06h15 and arrives at its destination at 07h15. The return flight is coded 4Z 882 and leaves Richards Bay at 07h55 and arrives in Johannesburg at 09h10.
