International Airlines Set Their Sights on Victoria Falls

(Victoria Falls)

27 January 2015

Three airlines have engaged in preliminary discussions to introduce direct flights to Victoria Falls International Airport following the large scale expansion of the airport.

Priscilla Mawire, Acting Director of Vic Falls Airport confirmed to Tourism Update that Etihad, Kenya Airways and Emirates have shown interest in launching direct flights, but that the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe still needs to engage in a more serious approach with these airlines.

None of the airlines have applied for permits to operate in the country as of yet, Mawire said.

From SA Tourism Update (

Should their plans succeed, these three airlines would make Victoria Falls easily accessible to travellers from UAE and East Africa. In addition, since Etihad and Emirates airlines connect a large web of traffic from all over the world to Abu Dabi and Dubai respectively, the market for Victoria Falls from these locations will greatly increase.

The expansion of the Victoria Falls Airport may also see other international airlines flying into the resort town.
