FlySafair heads to Zanzibar with the release of a new regional route

FlySafair, South Africa’s favourite low-cost carrier, is excited to announce the launch of their most recent regional route between O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) and Abeid Amani Karume International airport (ZNZ) in Zanzibar.

“We are so excited to be bringing our low fares to this route and connect more South Africans with this beautiful neighbour,” says Kirby Gordon, Chief Marketing Officer at FlySafair.

Starting from the first weekend of April 2023, FlySafair will offer a weekly return flight with a potential second weekday flight being added to the schedule at a later date. For now, the weekly return is scheduled for Saturdays with airfares starting from R2950* one way.

“Zanzibar is one of the most beautiful island destinations in Africa. This, along with the success we have seen flying to Mauritius and the demand for our chartered flights to Zanzibar, were key players in our decision to add this route to our schedule.”

Bookings for this route opened on the 13th of March 2023 and the first flight is set to take off from Johannesburg on Saturday 8th of April and land in Zanzibar later that evening. The weekly return flights to Zanzibar mark the beginning of a year of growth for the airline who plan to add more regional routes to their schedule along with more aircraft to their fleet in the coming months.

“After nearly three years of limited travel South Africans are once again eager to spread their wings both locally and regionally. We are so thrilled to be able to grow our services to meet the needs of our consumers.”
