Cape Town. —Africa’s low-cost airline, Fastjet, will begin operating services between Tanzania and Zimbabwe in August as it expands its international route network across Africa. The airline will launch a twice weekly operation from Dar es Salaam to Harare with tickets available from today for as low as $50 (R532,50 @ R10,65 per dollar) — (excluding government charges and taxes), significantly cheaper than fares from operators offering non-direct flights between the two cities.
The announcement marks the third international route for Fastjet, which already flies from Tanzania to Zambia and South Africa.
Despite strong commercial and cultural ties between the two cities, there is currently no direct air link between Dar es Salaam and Harare.
The port at Dar es Salaam is used extensively by Zimbabwean traders and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Zanzibar to the east of Tanzania are popular tourist destinations.
Commenting on the launch, Fastjet Interim executive chairman and chief executive Ed Winter said that this move is a response to the people of Tanzania and Zimbabwe crying out for a direct air-link between the two countries.
