Three airlines have engaged in preliminary discussions to introduce direct flights to Victoria Falls International Airport following the large scale expansion of the airport.
Priscilla Mawire, Acting Director of Vic Falls Airport confirmed to Tourism Update that Etihad, Kenya Airways and Emirates have shown interest in launching direct flights, but that the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe still needs to engage in a more serious approach with these airlines.
None of the airlines have applied for permits to operate in the country as of yet, Mawire said.
