Eswatini Air Begins Flights Into Zimbabwe

Eswatini Air on Friday, 14 April began its maiden flight into Zimbabwe, with the jet landing at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport at 11:50 AM.

The Royal Eswatini National Airways Corporation, running Eswatini Air, will fly into Harare four times a week, making it possible for travellers to fly directly between Mbabane and Harare.

The flights will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from King Mswati III International Airport to Harare.

Eswatini Air will operate two 50-seater Embraer ERJ145 aircraft.

Speaking to ZimLive, Airport Company of Zimbabwe’s CEO Tawanda Gusha, said:

Eswatini Air is launching flights today (Friday) between Mbabane and Harare and this is improving the country’s connectivity with the Southern African Development region.

This is also a show of confidence in the country’s policy on open skies and the implementation of the Single African Air Transport Market.

The route provides tourists and business travellers with a wider choice for travel in Southern Africa and beyond.

Eswatini Air becomes the latest national airline to fly into Zimbabwe after British Airways, RwandAir, Emirates, Ethiopian Airlines, and South African Airways.
