South African airline Airlink has confirmed the suspension of its air services between Johannesburg and Polokwane for the month of February.

“Unfortunately a combination of factors, most notably the latest surge in COVID-19 infections and the Level 3 lockdown restrictions which are intended to curb the virus’s spread, have decimated demand on what is traditionally an important and busy business travel route.  We are temporarily suspending the service until 03 March 2021, by which time we trust the situation will have improved,"  said Airlink Managing Director and CEO, Rodger Foster.

The company says it should resume services in March with an enhanced schedule of daily early morning and late afternoon return flights, enabling same-day return services between the two cities.
