FlySafair has added four regional routes – Harare, Livingstone, Victoria Falls, and Maputo.
“Plans for these routes have been in the pipeline for several months now,” said Kirby Gordon, Chief Marketing Officer at FlySafair. “We are so pleased to finally announce the addition of these routes and more importantly begin operations just in time for the festive season.”
On October 2, operations will start between Johannesburg and Harare and Johannesburg and Livingstone.
The Harare flights will operate daily while Livingstone flights are scheduled for four times weekly – Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
From October 3, Johannesburg to Victoria Falls will operate three times a week.
On October 5, the route Johannesburg to Maputo will begin operations four times per week.
“The introduction of new routes to our schedule is always exciting,” said Gordon. “We are happy to offer customers our low fares and on-time services on these additional routes. Tourism in Africa is definitely on the road to recovery. We hope to help play our part in growing the tourism industry both at home and abroad by connecting people through our passion for aviation.”
FlySafair has undergone a period of rapid growth, increasing the number of flights it operates by 47% between 2019 and 2022. This number is set to increase even further as the airline continues to add new aircraft, routes, and frequencies throughout 2023.
“Despite our rapid growth we have managed to maintain our customer focus with hassle-free travel and on-time performance remaining a priority. This is something our entire team are determined to continue as we navigate the new challenges that come with new routes,” said Gordon.
