Air Botswana has resumed flights between Gaborone, Harare and Lusaka beginning May 6th 2022.
In a statement, Air Botswana said they will initially have two weekly direct flights on Friday and Sunday.
“We are pleased about this development. It heralds that travel demand is gradually increasing after the global paralysis brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We are optimistic that, in due course the desire to travel will be even stronger and have positioned ourselves to cope with the much-anticipated travel demand both locally and regionally,” said General Manager, Mrs Agnes Khunwana.
The airline will be using its Embraer 170 jet to service the route as well as Gaborone-Cape Town.
The flights are timed in a way that connects them reducing time travel for connecting passengers among the three towns – Harare, Cape Town and Lusaka.
The development adds to the growing number of regional and international airlines which have resumed flights to Zimbabwe following the coming in of the Second Republic.
