Cape Town - has announced its new daily flights service between Harare – Johannesburg, saying it will offer fares 80% lower than its competitors.

The Pan-African low-cost carrier announced its expansion to include daily flights between Harare and Johannesburg, starting 1 November.

Sales are already open, with fares from R399 on the new route. 

“Our announcement is another milestone both for our airline and for developing business in Africa,” says Adrian Hamilton-Manns, Group CEO of

“Business and leisure travellers have being paying too much for far too long to travel between Harare and Johannesburg. Our minimum fare of R399, compared to our competitors’ minimum fare of R1,660, shows’s commitment to bringing low fares to Africa. 

"Our daily flight between Harare and Johannesburg marks our first entry into a traditional business route. Many leisure travellers want to travel between these two major African cities and until now that has not been possible due to high fares. We are proud to announce that as of today it is possible.” 

This route is the airline's second into the country, after it introduced flights between Victoria Falls and Johannesburg in August.
