HARARE-- Budget airline Fastjet Zimbabwe says it will increase flights between Harare and Victoria Falls by two additional frequencies beginning July 2 this year as the company continues to improve its visibility on the domestic market.
In the first quarter of this year, Fastjet reported an on-time performance of 90 per cent across its network and a recent survey conducted among the airline's passengers indicated a substantial upward curve in customer satisfaction levels with 83 per cent of respondents validating the airline's consistent affordability.
The airline operates in Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, South Africa and Zambia.
The additional flights between Harare and Victoria Falls equates to an 85 per cent year-on-year growth on the route, said Fastjet's General Manager of Marketing Communication, Hein Kaiser, in a statement Tuesday.
Fastjet now serves the route with twice-daily frequency, six days a week, with the only exception on Saturdays where the schedule remains unchanged with one flight between the cities.
Fastjet is committed to the ongoing development of affordable air travel for everyone in Zimbabwe, and our investment into additional connectivity evidences this, said Kaiser.
In 2017, Fastjet doubled the number of flights between Harare and Johannesburg as well as re-introduced thrice weekly frequencies between Victoria Falls and Johannesburg.
The airline now operates 92 flights every week.
Our red-eye flights between Harare and Dar-es-Salaam continue to enjoy popularity, added Kaiser.
