Tanzanian national airliner Air Tanzania yesterday re-introduced flights into Harare from Dar es Salaam.
Air Tanzania will ply the route three times a week, on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, using an Airbus A220-300. Air Zimbabwe and Fastjet are already servicing the route. Speaking during the launch, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Minister Prisca Mupfumira welcomed the move. She said the re-launch of the route opens a new chapter for Zimbabwe’s economy by enhancing both Zimbabwe’s trade and tourism activities. Said Mupfumira:
This historic re-launch is expected to open a whole chapter from an economic point of view as it enables our citizens to enjoy our diverse tourist attractions, which include Mt Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar in Tanzania and locally the majestic Victoria Falls and the Great Zimbabwe, as well as improved trade and commerce between the two countries. This increased connectivity will make it easier for tourists around the world to visit these attractions for the benefit of our states.
