FlyAfrica increases flights between Jozi and Harare for cheaper

HARARE-  BUDGET  airline Flyafrica  said it will introduce a second daily flight between Harare and Johannesburg from  the end of  this month  as part of its expansion strategy for its low cost business model and cut prices by 25 percent for the route.

“This is another milestone both for our airline and for Zimbabwe,” said the chief executive, Chakanyuka Karase.

“South African-based airlines have held the lion’s share of this market for many years and have had little competition. As a result we have always had to endure high fares to travel to our important trade partner, South Africa. South Africans have also had to endure high fares to come here for business or leisure. That has now changed, compared to other airlines that can charge up to $400 one-way,” says Karase.

“The second daily flight will  start  from 30 March with fares starting from $US39. (This) means that will offer 25 percent price cut on all flights on this route, the largest regional aviation market in Southern Africa,” said the company in a statement .

Flyafrica has been operating for the past  eight months in Zimbabwe and offers flights from Bulawayo, Harare and Victoria Falls to Johannesburg as well as domestic Zimbabwe flights between Harare and Victoria Falls.  -The Source
