South Africa's low-cost carrier FlySafair has received approval to operate flights to 11 new regional destinations within the southern African region.

Earlier this year, the low-cost carrier applied for rights to operate connections to a number of new destinations throughout the southern African region as well as additional frequencies to the island of Mauritius, where it already had been operating twice-weekly service.

FlySafair received approval to operate flights from Cape Town and Johannesburg to Gaborone, Botswana; Livingstone and Lusaka, Zambia; Luanda, Angola; Maputo, Mozambique; and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

In addition, the airline has been approved for frequencies from Johannesburg to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe; Nairobi, Kenya; and the Seychelles as well as between Cape Town and Windhoek, Namibia.

Its application for routes between Johannesburg and Windhoel as well as Harare and Zanzibar, Zimbabwe, and additional frequencies to Mauritius are still pending.

The addition of these routes to FlySafair's network will offer welcome connectivity and increased capacity to regional destinations within southern Africa, many of which have been constrained by the departures of previous route right holders.
