Fastjet, a value carrier airline, has announced plans to introduce daily flights from Victoria Falls to Nelspruit Kruger Mpumalanga in South Africa, aiming to support local and regional tourism by enhancing connectivity between these popular tourist destinations.

During a media familiarisation tour in Victoria Falls, Fastjet spokesperson Mr Nunurai Ndawana emphasized the airline’s commitment to improving its services and providing a reliable and efficient flight experience for tourists eager to explore Africa’s premier attractions.

“In our committed support of Zimbabwean and regional tourism, Fastjet will increase the number of flights from Victoria Falls to Nelspruit Kruger Mpumalanga in South Africa to a daily service from early July to the end of September 2024.

“These two destinations are among Africa’s most sought-after tourist attractions and as Fastjet we are delighted to provide a reliable and efficient flight service allowing tourists to explore more of Africa’s attractions,” he said.

The inclusion of Nelspruit Kruger Mpumalanga in Fastjet’s flight network reflects the airline’s strategy of expanding its presence in Zimbabwe.

In 2021, Fastjet successfully connected various locations across the country, including Kariba and Hwange.

Mr Ndawana said while the Hwange and Kariba flights will temporarily pause during the off-peak season, they will resume during the peak season to ensure convenient air travel options for travellers.

Mr Ndawana further highlighted that Fastjet has recently revamped its store in Victoria Falls to embody the essence of African heritage.

“Upon arrival at the Victoria Falls International Airport, the first thing you see is our new redefined shop, the shop here (Victoria Falls) and in Harare have the same design concept you can feel,” he said.

“We have rebranded to put our African essence as a proud Zimbabwean airline, so that is our look and feel.”

In addition to the increased flights, Fastjet Zimbabwe has recently launched the Amazing Zimbabwe marketing campaign.

The campaign aims to promote the hidden gems of Zimbabwe and celebrate the country’s natural beauty, vibrant culture, and rich heritage.

“Amazing Zimbabwe” is a celebration and promotion of all things Zimbabwean, encompassing the country’s beauty, vibrant culture and rich heritage.

The campaign is centred on four unique pillars synonymous with Zimbabwe’s Rich Traditions, Splendid Heritage, Iconic Sites, and Great People.

“The Amazing Zimbabwe campaign embodies the essence of Zimbabwe and our commitment to the continuous promotion of air connectivity in our beloved country. This campaign is tailored to showcase Zimbabwe’s great assets including some of those that often may not get the attention they deserve. It will be a wide-reaching showcase of many a splendour” said Mr Ndawana.

The award-winning airline’s Amazing Zimbabwe campaign aims to deliver a compelling message throughout its flight network, encouraging travellers to uncover hidden gems and make great discoveries in Zimbabwe.

Fastjet flights can be booked through the Fastjet website, mobile app, and usual online trade platforms, providing travellers with convenient access to explore the wonders of Zimbabwe.
