African low-cost airline fastjet has boosted the number of flights between Johannesburg and Harare after establishing the route a year and a half ago.
The company says that the increase in service can be attributed the “considerable success” of route, noting that there will be 12 new flights between Jozi and Harare per week, bringing the total to 50.
The route is popular among business professionals, but is also an important gateway to the tourism hotspot of Victoria Falls.
In fact, the carrier has also added more Harare – Victoria Falls charters in response to increased seasonal demand.
“The addition provides our passengers with increased travel option choices to visit the Falls during one if its peak seasons, when its water is at its lowest,” says spokesperson Heyn Kaiser.
The airline began operations in Tanzania back in 2012, and expanded to Zimbabwe in 2015. It brands itself as a “pan-African airline”, so more routes could be on the cards.
