Air Zimbabwe has increased frequencies for its services from Johannesburg to Harare and Bulawayo.
Public relations manager, Shingai Taruvinga, said the airline has introduced a Sunday frequency to the Johannesburg-Bulawayo route, which it now services four times a week. Midday flights have also been added to the morning Johannesburg - Harare flights.
“We have introduced more frequencies to our Joburg flights to give more options to our customers as we continue growing our market, especially in South Africa, as it receives a lot of travellers and it continues to be a developing destination,” Shingai said.
Taruvinga said it was the responsibility of the national airline to ensure that inflows to Zimbabwe increase in a bid to improve tourism.
The airline was striving to integrate the region through air access and has recently embraced e-technology, she said.
“We want to assist businesses to tap into activities in these cities were we are resuming services,” she said, adding that services had recently been resumed to Dar es Salaam. “By opening up of more routes, more opportunities can be exploited.”
