The flights resume today on October 27, 2020 and will be served initially twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays. Air Tanzania will operate the route via Lusaka, Zambia using a Dash8- Q400 aircraft.
We are thrilled to be resuming the Lusaka-Harare flights, this South bound route connects both Lusaka and Harare business people, tourists and academics to the port city of Dar-es-Salaam and beyond. As per the new normal, this flight will be operated under new health protocols.
With improved fleet, ATCL is confident to regain its position as a serious competitor in the air transport market.
