fastjet Zimbabwe is proud to introduce the much anticipated new route from Bulawayo, the second-largest city in Zimbabwe to Johannesburg.
Effective Thursday, 05 December 2019, fastjet will fly the new route with 22 scheduled flights per week including double daily frequencies Monday through Friday with a single flight operation on Sunday. This supports same day travel opportunities Monday through to Friday, with convenient timings on Sunday for those planning a weekend getaway or for those super-commuters who travel weekly between the city where they live and the city where they work.
The new route will complement our convenient daily return service from our hub in Harare to Johannesburg. The route will be operated by the our Embraer ERJ145, which offers travellers an exclusive seating configuration of either a window or aisle seat and the convenient drop and fly cabin baggage service.
With an expected flying time of 1 hour and 20 minutes in either direction and early morning and evening departures, the flight times will be convenient for both leisure and business travellers, according to fastjet Zimbabwe’s Chief Executive Officer Joao Sousa.
Fastjet Zimbabwe’s Chief Executive Office, Joao Sousa has this to say about the exciting news: "It's great that we can make a seamless journey a reality for our loyal customers supporting new business, trade and leisure opportunities between the two countries. We are excited to announce the first of a number of new routes approved by the regulators for the Zimbabwe network and we are committed to working with our team to ensure the success of this new route."
We will fly from Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo, International airport located 25km outside Bulawayo, to OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg, where travellers may connect to multiple global destinations on the services of ticketing airline partners Qatar Airways, Emirates Airline or an airline of choice. The new route schedule will increase fastjet daily flights across the network to 114 flights per week.
