Green light for Zanzibar!By ATTA®
The news of Mango’s two flights a week to the island paradise of Zanzibar has come just in time, when South Africans’ thoughts are turning to their Christmas holiday.
The airline’s announcement of a direct service, means a quick and easy flight, making it one of the easiest overseas beach holiday destinations for South Africans to travel to, with no restrictive travel requirements in place to enter the island.
Mango HOD: marketing and communications, Benediction Zubane, confirmed that the carrier would resume its flights between OR Tambo and Zanzibar on November 28. According to the flight details on Mango’s website, JE926 will depart from Johannesburg at 07h00, arriving in Zanzibar at 11h35 on Tuesdays and Saturdays. JE927 will depart from Zanzibar at 13h05, arriving in Johannesburg at 15h50.
“Going to Zanzibar there are no travel restrictions, however when passengers return to South Africa they are required to have a PCR test with them that is not more than 72 hours old,” said Benediction.
Ceo of Thompsons Holidays, Joanne Adolphe, told Travel News that it was focusing on the promotion of Zanzibar and Seychelles for the December holiday period at a time when the fluidity of COVID-19 restrictions made travel to so many other destinations quite prohibitive.
