“Following the great enthusiasm and support for our inaugural Harare-Johannesburg flight, we are continuing with our expansion plans”, says Professor Chaka Karase, CEO of Zimbabwe flyafrica. “Today’s announcement is great news for the people of Zimbabwe. We are offering domestic flights between Harare and Victoria Falls for never-before seen prices of $54 and flights from Bulawayo to Johannesburg from $89 (inclusive of airport taxes). We promised to bring low-fares to the market and we are delighted to be delivering on that promise.”
