Cape Town - Low-cost African carrier fastjet says they are looking at launching direct flights between Cape Town and Victoria Falls' new airport in Zimbabwe in the "fourth quarter of 2016 at the earliest".
This is according to Richard Bodin, fastjet's chief operating officer, who told Traveller24 that the route was still in the early planning phases and that while an end-of-year launch date would be ideal, "a later date is expected".
He admits, however, despite strong demand, that "fastjet's revenue has been negatively affected by a strong dollar and the airline has had to trim down frequencies on marginal routes".
South Africans can currently travel from OR Tambo International Airport to destinations such as Victoria Falls, Harare, Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.
