Speaking about the recently-announced partnership, Ramesh Marwah, Regional Managing Partner India, AirlinePros International, says, “India enjoys close strategic, cultural and economic ties with South Africa and neighbouring countries in southern Africa, which will be connected well to India by Airlink in cooperation with its interline partners. We are confident to receive necessary support of our trade partners in India to assist Airlink in not only establishing base in India but also securing optimum market share of travel triggered by growing trade, anticipated surge in tourism, and movement of large number of Indian-origin people residing in South Africa and other nations in southern Africa.”
