A new regional air service launches in Zimbabwe
Air Zimbabwe and Mack Air have recently agreed to launch a new domestic and regional air service in Harare, Zimbabwe.
The air service, called "Flame Lily Hoppa", will offer daily domestic flights between Victoria Falls and Harare, as well as flights to other major tourist destinations such as Hwange, Kariba and Chiredzi. The service will also flight directly to specific camps and lodges within these regions via prior arrangement. The agreement also includes flights between Zimbabwe and Botswana, South Africa and Mozambique. The flights will be operated by either Mack Air's Cessna Grand Caravan Ex or Air Zimbabwe's Embraer 145 jet aircraft.
The two companies plan to spearhead upgrades of both Kariba and Hwange Airports as well.
