Swaziland Airlink is the flag carrier of Eswatini. It is part of an alliance with South African Airways, South African Express and South African Airlink.

History[edit]

Swaziland Airlink was formed as a joint venture company between the Swaziland Government (60%) and Airlink (40%) to take over operations from Royal Swazi National Airways Corporation (RSNAC), the previous flag carrier of Swaziland. Swaziland Airlink started operations in July 1999 with a leased Fokker F28 aircraft from RSNAC linking Matsapha Airport with Johannesburg and Dar-es-Salaam. In June 2000, the Fokker F28 was replaced with a BAe Jetstream 41 aircraft.
