Air Botswana announced that it will soon begin flights between Harare and Gaborone.
The flights were suspended in 2016 as the route had become unprofitable for the airliner.
In an e-mail to the Chronicle, Air Botswana revealed that the flights will be resumed in August. It said:
Air Botswana will begin operating flights between Gaborone and Harare, Zimbabwe from August 2019.
Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) head of corporate communications, Godfrey Koti, told the Chronicle that the resumption of Air Botswana flights into Harare is a welcome development. Said Koti:
For us as a country, first of all, this shows the relations the two countries enjoy. I’m sure you are aware of the very close relationship that the Presidents of the two countries have with each other.
So, we rally behind that in the sense that, from a tourism business perspective, we are talking about connectivity being an issue within Africa. So, it’s a welcome development.
We are excited and elated because it will also increase the number of people that are coming from Botswana into Zimbabwe to explore our tourism products.
