Fastjet Zimbabwe will start daily flights from Harare and Victoria Falls to Kariba and Hwange National Park beginning March 27.
The flights will be operated on an Embraer E120, a 30-seater turboprop aircraft designed for domestic operations, offering customers a pressurized cabin with spacious legroom and overhead baggage space.
The new flights will be supported with onward connections on Mack Air/South West Aviation into the Hwange National Park itself as well as the lodges of the Kariba eastern basin and the camps and operations in Mana Pools and the lower Zambezi.

Vivian Ruwuya, Fastjet Zimbabwe's chief commercial officer, said Mack Air with South West Aviation will be developing a new hub at Kariba, along with their existing hubs in Victoria Falls and Harare, to support seamless connections to and from Fastjet's services.
"The introduction of flights to Kariba and Hwange now allows visitors in Victoria Falls to explore the wonders of Zimbabwe further by visiting both Hwange National Park and enjoy some time on the lake in Kariba, with its varied activities of game-viewing, boating and fishing," she said.
The new flights will be available for booking via the Fastjet website and app and through the GDSs.
