Fastjet Zimbabwe plans to increase daily flight frequency between Victoria Falls and Johannesburg in South Africa in response to demand, starting next month. It said in a statement:
Fastjet Zimbabwe is pleased to announce an increase to their current schedule to daily services between Victoria Falls International Airport and Johannesburg, OR Tambo International Airport effective from Sunday, 30 May 2021.
Flights will be operated on the airline’s fifty-seater Embraer ERJ145 aircraft, offering comfortable aisle and window seating options.
The new flight programme will have aircraft departing Johannesburg at 11:10 arriving in Victoria Falls, at 12:50. Fastjet’s arrival time in Victoria Falls offers customers the opportunity to minimise the time spent at the airport with a likely faster airport exit and more time at hand to enjoy some of the exhilarating afternoon activities that Victoria Falls is renowned for; as well as a seamless opportunity for daytime road transport arrangements.
The departure from Victoria Falls at 13:20 arriving at 14:55 in Johannesburg, offers travellers a leisurely morning in Victoria Falls to include any last-minute activities, like curio and art shopping and arriving in Johannesburg just before the peak travel times for those travellers connecting via OR Tambo International Airport and rush hour in Johannesburg.
The airline said it remains committed to offering reliable flight connections across the regional network and contributing favourably towards the recovery and renewal of leisure and corporate tourism mainly in Zimbabwe, South Africa and the African continent.
