Fastjet Launches Daily Flights Between Johannesburg And Harare

Fastjet Launches Daily Flights Between Johannesburg And HarareLow-cost pan-African airline Fastjet on Monday launched daily flights starting at $80 one way between Harare, Zimbabwe, and Johannesburg, South Africa, according to a press release.

The U.K.-based airline described its newest African route as ushering in a new era of choice for passengers who either had to pay prohibitively high fares on flights between the two cities, or travel up to 20 hours by road.

Fares on the new route start at $80 US one way, plus taxes ($50 US departing Zimbabwe or $35 US departing South Africa).

Even before Fastjet flights commenced between Johannesburg and Harare, airline customers felt the impact, the company said in a press release. Fares on competing airlines have fallen by as much as 40 percent since Fastjet made the announcement.


About The Project

South Africa's conduct of international relations, especially its role in international organisations like the UN Security Council, its choice of strategic partnerships, its leadership role in Africa, its public engagement and foreign policy decision making, has been intensely debated in the recent past. The FPA programme aims to provide a nuanced analysis and facilitate a structured discussion of South Africa's foreign policy in a changing world environment for purposes of informing its future direction.

Aims and Objectives of The Project

The purpose of this focus area is to unpack the extent to which the policy in its making, its nature and its application constitutes a principled and pragmatic response to a complex international environment. In doing so, we hope to be guided by an objective to promote a foreign policy that positions SA as a responsible global citizen committed to building bridges between various power blocs for the benefit of Africa and South Africans.
