Cemair Set To Launch Johannesburg-Harare Flights

Cemair Set To Launch Johannesburg-Harare Flights

In March 2024, Cemair, a South African airline that is privately owned and run, plans to begin operating flights between Johannesburg and Harare.

The airlines that now operate direct flights between these two significant cities will be joined by this new route.

Cemair will begin offering regular flights on the Johannesburg-Harare route four times a week on March 21, according to The South African.

In-flight meals, a 21-kg checked luggage allowance, and a 7-kg cabin baggage allowance are all included in the regular prices for passengers on these flights. Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono called the development “fantastic news” in his commentary:

Many frequent travellers will be hoping that this will help bring down costs on this route, which has historically had the highest cost per mile in the world.

More competition following the launch of a new airline frequently results in better airfare and more airline options for passengers.

Seeing how CemAir’s arrival affects the whole market for flights between Johannesburg and Harare will be a fascinating watch.

In addition to serving cities like Maputo in Mozambique, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, and Maun and Kasane in Botswana, Cemair currently runs a sizable network of domestic flights within South Africa.

The airline has stated that it plans to grow its service area in the future, indicating that it would soon be offering flights to Livingstone, Zambia, Luanda, Angola, and Gaborone, Botswana.

Similar to South Africa, Zimbabwe has seen excellent growth in air travel and tourism. Several airlines have started or resumed scheduled flights to Zimbabwe in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Airlink, FlySafair, South African Airways, Fastjet, and Air Zimbabwe are among the notable airlines operating this route.
