Air Zimbabwe to resume flights between Harare and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The Zimbabwe national flag carrier, Air Zimbabwe, will resume a scheduled service between Harare International Airport (HRE) in Harare and Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.


Effective 14 May 2016, the airline will initially operate two flights per week on Tuesdays and Saturdays on board an Airbus A320 between the two cities.

The airline seeks to tap into the growing trade between the two countries.

Air Zim spokesperson Shingai Dhliwayo confirmed the opening of the new route.

“We will start flying into Dar es Salaam on May 14 as we want to help cross-border traders and business travellers flying between the two countries,” she said.

Dhliwayo added: “The airline has a generous baggage limit of 40 kilogrammes per passenger and this should come in handy for the flying public.”

The return trip fare would be starting from $400 per person, with flights every Tuesday and Saturday.

The new route will put AirZim in direct competition with budget airline FastJet that also plies the route, but charges passengers according to the baggage they are carrying.

Dar es Salaam will become the third regional destination that AirZim has scheduled flights to after Johannesburg and Lusaka.

Dhliwayo said the airline was consolidating its position on the regional routes as it aims to start flying long haul flights to Europe and Far East.

“The airline remains determined to re-open its direct flights to London and China in the near future as resources become available and when an agreement with a strategic partner is concluded,” she said.
