Fastjet Zimbabwe reintroduced its Victoria Falls-Johannesburg service yesterday, March 16.
The flights, which resumed in December, were placed on hold again in January due to the drop in demand on leisure travel linked to the global pandemic.
The flights operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, departing from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport at 11h10, arriving in Victoria Falls at 12h50.
The return flight departs Victoria Falls at 13h20, arriving at 14h55 in Johannesburg. Flights are operated by the airline’s 50-seat Embraer ERJ145 aircraft.
“As COVID-19 restrictions ease, we are reacting to an increased interest for reliable flight connections on this key route, particularly as domestic and regional tourism returns. To complement the Rovos Rail service from Pretoria to Victoria Falls, fastjet will be adding ad hoc additional flights on a Friday, allowing customers an ‘air-rail’ experience between South Africa and Zimbabwe,” said a fastjet Zimbabwe spokesperson.
