Moreover, the agreement includes services to camps and lodges within the environs of the above-mentioned major tourism hubs on an anticipated per seat basis. A daily regional scheduled air service between Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa and Mozambique will also be launched. The statement further reads:
These flights will initially focus on leveraging the historic tourism links between Zimbabwe and Botswana, obvious geographic positioning and thereby ensuring the inauguration of additional tourism circuit products by operators and using a platform of integrated flights, services and links provided on the Flame Lily Hoppa.
The agreement shall also see flights operated using a blend of brand new Cessna Grand Caravan EX operated by Mack Air and Embraer 145 jet aircraft from Air Zimbabwe.
