Traffic to Zimbabwe from South Africa on the increase

NEWLY RELEASED DATA RANKS THE MOST IN DEMAND DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL AIR ROUTESFROM O.R. TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, CAPE TOWN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND KING SHAKA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

The rankings were based on an analysis of more than 800 000 individual trips booked on Travelstart.co.za since the start of 2017.

Top 5 international destinations for 2018 were:

  1. Harare Zimbabwe
  2. London UK
  3. Mauritius
  4. New York City
  5. Windhoek Namibia.

For the first time, Harare tops the list of most popular international destinations for flights originating in South Africa in 2018.

While the top spots were always held by London (2014 and 2017) and Windhoek (2015 and 2016), Harare’s breakout growth this year may be a result of the changing political climate in Zimbabwe.
