Fastjet Zimbabwe is pleased to announce the recommencement of flights between Victoria Falls International Airport and OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg from Tuesday 16 March 2021.
The flights will operate thrice weekly between the two cities. We are pleased to return to this route following our temporary interruption of service on the route due to a drop in demand for leisure travel linked to the global pandemic.
As Covid-19 restrictions ease we are reacting to an increased interest for reliable flight connections on this key route particularly as domestic and regional tourism returns.
An additional flight will be added on Fridays based on demand, the airliner said.
Currently, Fastjet services three routes between Harare, Bulawayo and Victoria Falls cities and regionally it offers Harare, Bulawayo and Victoria Falls to Johannesburg flights.
