Fastjest welcomes aircraft to service new Kariba, Hwange routes

HARARE – Fastjet Zimbabwe has welcomed its first 30-seater Embaer E120 aircraft set to service its new domestic routes to resort destinations Kariba and Hwange National Park.

Fastjet continues to increase air connectivity in the country with the new routes bringing to five, the number of domestic destinations serviced by the low-cost airline after Harare, Victoria Falls, and Bulawayo.

Company spokesperson Nunurai Ndawana said the air carrier continues to offer its customers seamless connectivity to the country’s top leisure destinations.

“We are delighted to welcome this aircraft to serve our domestic new routes to Kariba and Hwange National Park,” he said.

“Air connectivity is a key enabler for tourism development, and we continue to demonstrate our commitment to the development of tourism in Zimbabwe and the region.

“We are finalising our preparations for the launch of flights to Kariba and Hwange National Park.

“The arrival of this aircraft will see us concluding the mandatory regulatory processes in operating flights to these strategic destinations in the development of tourism in Zimbabwe.

“In preparation for these route launches, the aircraft will operate a series of ad-hoc charter flights around Zimbabwe ahead of the full scheduled launch.”

The new flights are available for booking on the Fastjet website, App, and the usual online trade portals.

Operating since 2012, the airline has managed to expand its footprint on the regional and domestic airspace.

Apart from the domestic routes it currently services, Fastjet also offers international flights from Harare, Bulawayo, and Victoria Falls to Johannesburg in South Africa, and from Victoria Falls to Mbombela (Kruger) Nelspruit Mpumalanga in South Africa and Maun in Botswana.
