Fly Africa flights to start this week

FLYAFRICA Zimbabwe, last week announced the expansion of its low-fare business model to include daily flights between Harare and Johannesburg.

FlyAfrica, who launched operations in the country with services to Victoria Falls, will commence at the start of November, the company said in a statement adding fares for the Joburg route would be fares from US$89 (incl. taxes), one-way.

“(Friday’s) announcement is another milestone both for our airline and for developing business in Africa,” said Professor Chakanyuka Karase, Executive Chairman and CEO of flyafrica - Zimbabwe.

“Business and leisure travellers have paid too much for too long to South African airlines to travel between Harare and Johannesburg.

“Our fare of $89 compared to the $157 offered by South African based competitors, shows FlyAfrica Zimbabwe’s commitment to bringing low fares to Africa.

“Our daily Harare-Johannesburg flight marks the entry by FlyAfrica Zimbabwe into a traditional business route and we are confident that every business will welcome the opportunity to reduce their travel cost by 60-80 percent.

“With low fares and no fuel surcharge not only the business traveller benefits.”

The low fare airline will operate daily flights between Harare and Johannesburg in addition to its Victoria Falls to Johannesburg service that has been flying for a month.

“From the moment we launched we have been overwhelmed with the support and enthusiasm for our airline and our low fares,” says Professor Karase.

“When we launched we promised to introduce low-fares to many markets, and we are very excited to be delivering on our promise.

“This would not have been possible without the support of the Ministry of Transport, the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe and the Ministry of Tourism.

“We gratefully acknowledge their support and assistance to enable us to build a proudly Zimbabwean airline that can keep fares low and allow Zimbabweans to travel.”
