fastjet plc (“fastjet” or “the Group”) is pleased to announce the introduction of its new direct route schedule from Bulawayo in Zimbabwe to Johannesburg in South Africa, starting next month.
fastjet Zimbabwe will begin flying the new route on 5 December 2019 with 22 scheduled flights per week, including double-daily frequencies Monday to Friday and with a single flight operation on Sunday.
Commenting on the announcement, fastjet Chief Executive Officer Mark Hurst said: “We are pleased to announce the commencement of the first of several new routes we are planning for 2020, further enhancing our network in the country. Our schedule will allow business travellers wanting to leave and return home from either Johannesburg or Bulawayo on the same day, a complete full working day each weekday, offering a unique schedule advantage over today’s existing connectivity.
“Linking Zimbabwe’s second-largest city with Johannesburg twice a day is a significant step. We are committed to growing the route and visitor numbers in both directions, and to expanding our overall Zimbabwe network.”
Flights will be available for sale from 15 November 2019.
The new route will complement fastjet Zimbabwe’s four times daily return service from its hub in Harare, Zimbabwe, to Johannesburg and will be operated by the airline’s Embraer ERJ145.
Once passengers have arrived in Bulawayo or Johannesburg, they will also have the option to connect to multiple global destinations on the services of ticketing airline partners Qatar Airways and Emirates, or an airline of their choice.
The new route schedule will increase the airline’s daily flights across the network to 114 flights per week.
