MEDIA BRIEFING INVITE FOR RE-INTRODUCTION OF AMBRAER 170 AT FARB

MEDIA BRIEFING INVITE FOR RE-INTRODUCTION OF AMBRAER 170 AT FARB

The City of uMhlathuze as the licensed aerodrome operator of the Richards Bay Airport is pleased to announce the transitioning from the smaller aircraft J41 (25-seater) to the larger aircraft E170 (75-seater) which is operated by Airlink. This move aims to accommodate the increasing demand for both passenger and cargo services at Richards Bay Airport.

Since the reopening of Richards Bay Airport in September 2022, the passenger count has soared from 849 to over 1500 per month. The growing demand necessitates this upgrade as the current fleet operates at full capacity.

This upgrade is not only a milestone for Airlink but also crucial for the airport and the community of uMhlathuze. With the increased seating capacity, there will be more opportunities for travel and enhanced cargo movement.

We cordially invite you to join us at this media briefing to witness and cover this momentous occasion. Kindly RSVP by the 1st of December 2023.
