KLM launches route to Zimbabwe’s capital Harare

  • KLM Royal Dutch Airlines became the only airline to link Europe non-stop with Harare (HRE), capital of Zimbabwe, when the SkyTeam airline relaunched flights from its Amsterdam (AMS) hub on 29 October. Using 243-seat A330-200 aircraft, the airline now flies three times a week, stopping in Lusaka in Zambia – a route launched earlier this year – on the return. The airline last served Harare in 1999, then via Johannesburg. Erik Varwijk, KLM Managing Director and EVP Air France KLM International & the Netherlands, commented: “KLM sees great growth opportunities in Africa. This year we launched service to Luanda in Angola and Lusaka in Zambia, and in 2011 we began serving Kigali in Rwanda. This new addition to our network strengthens our position in Africa.”
