A South African Airlink flight from Pietermaritzburg to Joburg had to turn around just after take-off because the crew was not able to retract the landing gear. The Avro RJ-85 aircraft’s landing gear seemed to be faulty as it did not move back into the aircraft after numerous attempts by the pilots to lift up the landing gear. It was decided that it would be safer for the aircraft to head back to Pietermaritzburg. Great to see that safety comes first with SA Airlink.

SA Airlink begins a 2nd morning flight from Pietermaritzburg to Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport, leaving PZB at 08h30 and arriving at JNB at 09h30.  Airlink’s Marketing and Sales Manager, Karin Murray, said that “At the inception of the jet service our Pietermaritzburg resident business travellers asked us if we could both move our morning flight out of Pietermaritzburg earlier (dept PZB 06h45 arr JNB 07h45), as well as also making our evening flight out of OR Tambo a little later (dept JNB 18h00 arr PZB 19h00). These preferred flight times are as a result of the time required to travel to and from OR Tambo to their meetings in the Gauteng area. With the completion of the Pietermaritzburg runway rehabilitation project, we are now able to operate both earlier from, and later to, Pietermaritzburg airport and are very pleased to be able to inform our regular travellers that we have been able to satisfy their request.”
