Avis Rent A Car has been named the official car rental company at South Africa’s renovated Skukuza Airport in the Kruger National Park, according to Airlink, a South African airline.

Avis will provide pre-booked rental cars for tourists at the Skukuza Airport as well as a shuttle service to the main Skukuza camp, says Airlink.

“For Airlink, the opportunity to work with Avis and to be able to offer our flights in conjunction with the global reach of the Avis brand is significant,” said Karin Murry, Airlink’s sales and marketing manager. “The opportunity for visitors to the Kruger Park to take advantage of a ‘Fly and Drive’ option using Skukuza as the entry point will add new convenience to their travel within the Kruger National Park. …”

“We are delighted that Skukuza Airport is finally re-opening,” said Lance Smith, executive of sales for Avis Rent A Car. “The opportunity to fly directly into the Kruger Park, hire a car and immediately begin your game drive, as you exit the airport, is unique.”

Airlink will launch flights to Skukuza from Cape Town International Airport and Johannesburg’s Tambo International Airport starting on June 2.
