FlyAfrica, which is the low cost airline service of Zimbabwe will expands its daily flight service between Harare and Johannesburg to double daily flight per day from the end of March 2015. The news became more awesome when the company officially declared that it will down its fares by 25 percent for this route to provide one of the best cheapest flights to its customers.
In this context, the chief executive for flyafrica Mr Chakanyuka Karase said that “This is another milestone both for our airline and for Zimbabwe.” He further added that “South African-based airlines have held the lion’s share of this market for many years and have had limited 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.
“With the launch of flyafrica.com we reduced fares to £39 one way, compared to other airlines that can charge up to £400 one-way.”
Daily Flight operations between Johannesburg and Harare was recently announced to facilitate both locals and foreigners. Also adding some other regional routes to its schedule in the start of 2015 was a major step taken by flyafrica to achieve its economic and quality service targets.
