SA Express operates flights to Harare from Durban.

Harare, Zimbabwe
SA Express Airlines will be expanding its route network into Zimbabwe with the launch of its flights to Harare from Durban, with an inaugural flight scheduled for October 3.
In a statement, SA Express Airlines said the new route would be the airline’s second major regional route launched in the last three months, taking the carrier’s destinations to 16.

In July, it launched three flights a week between King Shaka and Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Zambia.

“The launch of this new route and added frequencies further underscores the importance of the Durban base and the commitment to its growth,” the company said.

The latest three flights between Durban and Harare will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays using a wide-body CRJ 200 aircraft that can carry up to 50 passengers.

SA Express said the two-hour thirty-minute direct connection would be more affordable and convenient for the business market, but leisure travellers would equally benefit from more travel options into and out of KwaZulu-Natal.

“The new air route is part of a strategy to develop sub-regional air network from KwaZulu-Natal to the 14-nation Southern African Development Community, and thus boosting the tourism and regional business development between the two countries,” said SA Express.
