Flyafrica.com launched its first flight from Victoria Falls to Johannesburg on July 18. The airline’s flight schedule will commence from July 23. “The flight is a milestone both for our airline and for African aviation,” says
Adrian Hamilton-Manns, Group CEO of the airline. “We have successfully launched Africa’s first low-fare airline. It was done on time and as planned. It is a testament to our experienced team, who have exceeded all requirements, and to the support of both the South African and Zimbabwean regulatory authorities who assisted us.”
The airline will initially operate scheduled flights between Johannesburg and Victoria Falls on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. From September, flyafrica.com will operate a Monday flight as well in response to demand for low fares.
“From the moment we offered R99 to Victoria Falls we have been overwhelmed with support and enthusiasm for our low fares,” comments Hamilton-Manns. “While there has been some scepticism that it is a gimmick and is too good to be true, the vast majority of people have supported and encouraged us. With the first flight completed and a second airline within the flyafrica.com group about to be announced, we are confident that the travelling public will embrace the low-fare revolution we are bringing.”
