HARARE,– Low cost airline Fly Africa said on Monday it will effective July introduce daily flights between Harare and Victoria Falls up from the current three times weekly in a sign of spurring demand for affordable and quick travel.
The route, which was launched late last year has become a hit for the low cost airline which is travelling to the resort town at fares that are nearly a tenth of what is levied by national airline Air Zimbabwe on the same route.
“Victoria Falls moves from our current Monday, Wednesday and Sunday flights and becomes a daily flight from 01 July – meaning you can enjoy fares from $39 every day of the week,” Fly Africa said in a statement.
The airline also reiterated it was going ahead with plans to introduce the Bulawayo-Johannesburg, South Africa route from March in line with its route expansion programme.
The expansion will also see Fly Africa introducing a service from Windhoek, Namibia to Johannesburg and from Windhoek to Cape Town, South Africa.
Fly Africa has said it will this year aim to “develop more routes and enable more passengers to travel around Africa without having to use the traditional path of connecting through Johannesburg.”
The airline, which is a partnership between the Karase family’s Fresh Air and Mike Bond of the now defunct One Time of South Africa, has a fleet of five aircraft. – The Source
