Mack Air has partnered with South West Aviation to offer new and extensive flight services across Zimbabwe and throughout the southern region.

According to Mack Air MD, Michael Weyl, the company has set up hubs in Harare and Victoria Falls that will principally service all domestic destinations and safari camps in Zimbabwe. However, when regional flights are launched by the end of quarter one next year, the Victoria Falls hub will serve tourist destinations in Botswana, South Africa, Namibia and Zambia while the Harare hub will serve the Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique markets.

Weyl added: “South West Aviation shares our passion, values and ambition. We are therefore extremely confident that, together, we will exceed our customers’ ever-expanding travel needs.”

The first Cessna Grand Caravan EX, positioned in Zimbabwe, is currently operational, and the airline expects to expand the fleet by March to an additional five aircraft, which will result in the partnership operating a fleet of six aircraft for the 2023 season in Zimbabwe.

Airfares will initially be offered exclusively out of the Victoria Falls hub for the Hwange area, however, as demand rises the airline hopes to introduce airfares throughout the region.
