UPDATE: Airlink flight numbers will now change from SA813x to 4Z13x on 20 April 2020, and not on 11 June 2020 as previously planned. Please substitute 20 April for 11 June throughout the following text. All of the other information remains correct.
On 16 January 2020, Airlink announced a change to their flight numbers which will become effective from 11 June 2020. From that date, flight numbers to and from St Helena will change from SA813x to 4Z13x. So for example, the current flight number SA8131 will change to 4Z131, and SA8132 will change to 4Z132. This means that tickets issued from today for travel on Airlink’s flights after 10 June 2020 will reference the new flight number.
Tickets already issued for travel after 10 June 2020 on flights with SA813x flight numbers will remain valid for travel subject to re-accommodation; Airlink will work with travel agents, tour operators and customers to expedite the re-accommodation.
In the meantime, Airlink will continue to sell tickets for flights operated on the SA813x code up to 10 June 2020. These are available through travel agents, tour operators, on both the www.flyairlink.com and www.flysaa.com as well as all other online booking platforms.
Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster said “Marketing and selling flights under our own 4Z code is an exciting development for Airlink as we propagate our business and take advantage of new market opportunities. At the same time, we will be able to strengthen our vital partnership with SAA.”
