LOW-COST airline fastjet Zimbabwe has doubled its flight frequency on the Harare-Johannesburg route barely a month after launching the lucrative route, in response to strong passenger demand, the company has announced.
fastjet Zimbabwe will now offer double daily flights on each day of the week – apart from Saturdays – making a total of 26 flights per week on its route between Harare International Airport and Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport.
The increased flight frequency will be phased in, with Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evening flights starting on the 26 February 2016, and evening flights on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning on 28 March 2016.
“We have always promised to increase the frequency on our route between Harare and Johannesburg as and when our customers demanded it,” said Ed Lanca, Director of Flight Operations at fastjet Zimbabwe.
“Announcing an extra six return flights a week just one month after the inaugural Johannesburg flight emphasises our commitment to growing our flight schedule, making air travel easy, safe and affordable.
“The additional evening return flights mean that passengers can schedule meetings in either Harare or Johannesburg, and travel to their destination city and back home within the same day,” said Lanca. “This convenience and choice is great for business passengers under pressure to maximise time and cost savings, and who do not want to overnight for just one or two meetings.”-Staff Writer'
