Airlink touches down in Malawi with Lilongwe and Blantyre routes

Airlink made this announcement:

On Wednesday afternoon Airlink touched down in Blantyre, wrapping up the successful inauguration of its new dual Malawi routes – the other destination being Lilongwe.

With the new services Malawi becomes the latest country in Airlink’s comprehensive network which now extends to 46 destinations.

Last year, Malawi featured in Lonely Planet’s top 10 Best in Travel countries. Tourist attractions include Lake Malawi (Africa’s third-largest and the ninth biggest in the world, which is more like an inland sea), wildlife, adventure and its rich cultural heritage. The country has also embarked on a programme to revitalise its economy and build a prosperous, self-reliant and industrialised middle-income country.

Airlink will initially fly comfortable and efficient 37-seat Embraer Regional Jets on both new routes with services operating at these times and days of the week:
