Fastjet Zimbabwe announced on Thursday the introduction of a new service route between Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Maun in Botswana.
The new route is expected to operate four (4) times per week on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Fastjet will operate the route using a 50-seat Embraer ERJ145 aircraft.
This aircraft choice is known for offering the versatility needed to build a sustainable regional network with the right capacity while providing customers with comfortable seats with generous legroom.
Fastjet Zimbabwe spokesman Nunurai Ndawana said: “The airline is delighted to introduce direct flights from Victoria Falls to Maun.
“Using our Embraer ERJ145 aircraft, we believe this route will facilitate more travel between these two tourist capitals of Zimbabwe and Botswana. This route has been available for many years only by private charter.
“So with the introduction of this direct connection, we believe it can boost the development and growth of tourism in the region.”
Fastjet Group Chief Operating Officer Donahue Cortes said: “The Victoria Falls – Maun flight is the second new route added to Fastjet’s regional network, with flights between Victoria Falls and Nelspruit Kruger Mpumalanga expected to launch before the Easter travel period.
Despite the lasting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Group remains dedicated to the recovery and growth of tourism in Zimbabwe, South Africa and Botswana, and to bringing more connectivity to the region.”
