fastJet airlines collaborate to Expand Kruger Connections

fastJet subsidiary, Federal Airlines are proud to announce an expansion to its Kruger-Mpumalanga (KMIA) shuttle flight offering. From 6 July 2020, Federal Airlines will offer seamless connections to guests wishing to combine Victoria Falls and Kruger National Park as part of their safari itinerary.

The above is made possible due to the recent announcement from partner airline, Fastjet Zimbabwe. The recent announcement sees FN 8801 departing Victoria Falls (VFA) at 11:20 and arriving at Kruger-Mpumalanga International (MQP) at 13:05. FN 8802 will depart MQP at 13:35 and arrive at VFA at 15:15. Flights will be operated on the 50 seater Embraer 145 Regional Jet.

These exciting new flight times will allow southbound guests to undertake a morning activity or partake in a leisurely breakfast in Victoria Falls and arrive at KMIA to connect seamlessly with Federal Airlines to the Sabi Sands, Manyeleti or Timbavati Game Reserves for an afternoon game drive. 

Northbound Guests will be able to enjoy a morning game drive in their private game reserve or The Kruger National Park, before a quick Federal Airlines flight to KMIA and onwards to Victoria Falls, this will land in time for an evening activity in Vic Falls (activity dependent).

Federal Airlines will continue to offer connections to all other scheduled operators at KMIA as per our published agents manual for 2020. Please refer to the “Lowveld Shuttle Timetable” for more detailed information. The comfortable private lounge, complimentary baggage storage and team of friendly guest relations staff at KMIA offer exceptional hospitality and convenience to our guests passing through KMIA.

Clients wishing to book groups or private charter flights can contact the Federal Airlines charter department for quotations on various aircraft sizes. Please contact Charters@fedair.com for more information.

For added customer satisfaction and ease of booking, Federal Airlines will act as a sales agent for fastJet ticket sales for the VFA-KMIA routing. This will allow our travel partners to make one booking with Federal Airlines for their client’s shuttle flight as well as their scheduled Fastjet flight.
