2 min read

Fastjet Zimbabwe announced the launch of two new routes.

Victoria Falls to Kruger Mpumulanga International Airport – KMIA (Nelspruit) on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

To accompany this will be the rebirth of the Bulawayo to Victoria Falls route, this will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The first day of operation will be Monday 6 July for both routes. The new route is expected to improve connectivity and options to Fastjet’s tourism industry partners, when creating interesting and varied itineraries for their clients.

The timing of the flights will be such that it will allow for Southbound Guests to undertake a morning activity or partake in a leisurely breakfast in Victoria Falls and arrive at KMIA to connect seamlessly with Federal Airlines to the Sabi Sands, Manyeleti or Timbavati Game Reserves for an afternoon game drive.

Northbound Guests will be able to enjoy a morning game drive in their private game reserve or The Kruger National Park, before a quick Federal Airlines flight to KMIA and the flight to Victoria Falls, this will land in time for an evening activity in Vic Falls (activity dependent).

Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
FN 8801 Victoria Falls (VFA) to KMIA (MQP) depart 11:20 & arrive 13:05
FN 8802 KMIA (MQP) to Victoria Falls (VFA) depart 13:35 & arrive 15:15

The Bulawayo to Victoria Falls flight will provide links for tourists to explore the wonders of Bulawayo’s history, The Matobo National Park and Khami Ruins with onward links to Johannesburg or Harare, this route can form an integral part in any itinerary.

For the resident traveller this route will provide a welcome alternative to a long road trip. For those conducting business between the two regions – the Monday, Wednesday and Friday operations will give plenty of choice.

For Parents and Students of Bulawayo’s boarding schools there is now a quicker way to get to and from school. These flights are also timed to allow for direct connectivity to and from Johannesburg.
