The staff at Fastjet Zimbabwe pride themselves on being able to provide low-cost travel to passengers wanting to fly to locations in eastern and southern Africa.

At the airport
Fastjet Zimbabwe is based at Robert Mugabe International Airport (previously known as Harare International Airport).
Before you check-in, it is advisable to make use of the baggage wrap facility. For a nominal fee, your bag will be wrapped in plastic to ensure that the contents of your suitcase are safely transported to your destination.
Check-in opens two hours prior to departure and closes 40 minutes before your flight leaves. In order to check in you will need your ID and your credit card if you used it to pay for your ticket. Once you have presented these, you will be issued with a boarding pass. Note that if you don’t check-in within this time-frame, you will not be permitted to board your flight. Tickets are non-refundable.
Preparing to visit Zimbabwe
Did you know that Zimbabwe has 16 official languages? Commonly spoken languages include Tswana, Shona and Tsonga. But if you are not fluent in one of the native tongues, you don’t have to worry because English is one of the official languages. You should be able to get by without knowing local lingo.
In terms of currency, you can use the Zimbabwean Dollar or the US Dollar.
There are a number of vaccinations that you should get before you visit this country. WHO recommends that you get the following immunizations, among others:
Hepatitis A and B
The best time to visit Zimbabwe is between May and October. However, travellers should note that September and October can be extremely hot.
Travelling in Zimbabwe
Robert Mugabe International Airport is located a mere 15km from Harare city centre. You have a number of transport options that can take you to your place of accommodation, including hiring a car and taking a taxi. You can hire a car from a number of rental agencies that are located at the airport, such as Avis and Europcar. There is also a shuttle service that can take you to Harare, which is equipped to transport luggage as well.
Your experience of Zimbabwe can vary greatly depending on how you choose to travel. Taking a taxi can be more expensive, but it is the more luxurious way to get from point A to B, without the stress of squeezing into an overcrowded minibus that may or may not take you the exact location you need to be.
The roads in Zimbabwe are fairly good, which make hiring a car a good option if you want to travel long distances. The only down-side to this is that you have to go well prepared in terms of knowing where you can get fuel: garages where you can fill up are few and far between.
There is a railway system that transports passengers between the main cities of Harare, Bulawayo, Victoria Falls and Plumtree. They have first, second and third class cabins, but the facilities on board are fairly rudimentary in general. Although most of these trains are sleeper trains, this option is a good way to see a bit of the country-side without going to the expense of hiring a car.
You can also catch one of two buses in Zimbabwe: a local bus or an express bus. Express buses usually need to be booked in advance, while you can catch a local bus in the centre of most towns or at markets. They usually wait until they are full before they leave, so make sure your schedule is flexible if you want to catch one of these.
