Posted 21 November 2017 · Add Comment

South African Airways (SAA) has clarified that its operations between Johannesburg and Zimbabwe remain in place in spite of the prevailing situation in Zimbabwe.

The airline operates flights between Johannesburg and Zimbabwe daily and has not experienced any service disruptions since the recent developments in Zimbabwe.

“Zimbabwe is one of our most important markets in the region and this is evidenced by high demand that led to increased frequencies so that we are able to better serve that market. SAA offers flights between Johannesburg and Harare three times daily and Victoria Falls once daily,” said SAA Spokesperson, Tlali Tlali.

“We are closely monitoring the situation and are in constant liaison with the relevant authorities both in South Africa and in Zimbabwe to enable us to make appropriate operational decisions,” explained Tlali.

SAA recommends that travellers allow additional time for check-in and security screening at airports in Harare and Victoria Falls. For updated flight status information, travellers can visit www.flysaa.com or contact SAA Reservations.

“South African Airways will provide additional updates in case there are developments which might have a bearing on its operations,” concluded Tlali.
