Investec provides two-part facility for Airlink
Airlink is one of the key strategic clients of Investec. We provided two facilities to Airlink; the first was for the purchase of an Embraer E190 simulator used for pilot training, while the second facility was to refinance its acquisition of a 2011 year of build Embraer E190-100LR aircraft to be used in Airlink’s operations. The Embraer E190 simulator was Airlink’s second simulator purchase and a further investment into growing the training capabilities of the airline domestically. The Embraer E190 aircraft was Airlink's first aircraft acquisition since the end of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Airlink is a privately owned full-service regional carrier operating in Southern Africa, flying to 48 regional destinations in 14 African countries and St Helena Island. Airlink currently operates 63 aircraft and carries more than 3.5 million passengers annually, with an on-time performance of 95%. Airlink benefits from interline and codeshare agreements with the largest global airlines, including Emirates, Qatar, United Airlines, British Airways, and Lufthansa offering international travellers more connectivity.
