FastJet Zimbabwe said that it is finalising plans for the resumption of its scheduled flights following the recent announcement by the government on the lifting of air travel restrictions.
On Tuesday, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa announced that domestic and international flights will resume on 10 September and 1 October, respectively following months of coronavirus-induced suspension.
In a statement on Thursday, FastJet Zimbabwe said it will soon announce a revised domestic network flying programme. The statement read:
FastJet Zimbabwe is delighted with the latest news released by the Government of Zimbabwe on 08 September 2020 announcing the official resumption of domestic and international air transportation, approved with prescribed travel safety conditions.
Today we initiated robust discussions and are actively engaged with key stakeholders as we finalise plans for the recommencement of domestic flights between Harare and Bulawayo and Harare and Victoria Falls, following yesterday’s announcement by the Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting.
Whilst we deliberate on the next steps in announcing recommencement dates and a revised domestic network flying programme, we express our sincere gratitude to the respective Ministries, Authorities and Agencies for their continued efforts in preparing the travel industry to a return to operations.
