KLM has expanded its UK passenger base for flights to Harare by establishing Amsterdam as the lone stopover, making the journey comfortable and shorter in duration.
(PRWEB UK) 22 October 2012
KLM, one of the oldest established airlines and a prominent carrier in the current aviation line-up, has reduced hassle for its Harare-bound passengers from England by scheduling only one stopover at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
KLM will initiate these flights from the 29th of October this year. The flights will operate three times a week, boarding passengers from international airports across the United Kingdom. KLM has struck a new chord with letting added passengers on the flight from airports in the North of England, namely Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester.
Victor Hunt, Operations Manager for TravelhouseUK, has highlighted that KLM’s initiative is in the best of interests for the travelling community, stating that along with bargain deals, KLM has struck off its former second stopover at Johannesburg for the flight before finally reaching Harare. The flight will only be making one touchdown (lay over, no check-out required) at Lusaka after it’s stopover in Amsterdam.
TravelhouseUK has surfaced as a renowned travel agency offering low airfare for passengers from the UK, while recommending the best flights under its consultation services. With extensive experience, it has specialized in catering needs of passengers for availing flights to Africa.
At another instance, Victor Hunt specified that the new route will significantly reduce the flight duration to Harare down to 10 hours, making it the fastest flight available between the two destinations. Conventional routes usually involve two stopovers averaging a total time of 14 hours approximately. He further added that the return flights under the deal would take off from Harare by 10 P.M, a decent timing for spending an additional day at the city.
TravelhouseUK has integrated its influence in the air travel industry with additional services with its years of consistent progress in the market. The agency not only facilitates bookings for international destinations, but also has an online platform for specifying places of interest for exploration. Its functions include releasing complete travel guides for guidance of potential travelers to get hands-on information on where to go, how to commute and what to expect. Holiday packages are offered for family tours to intercontinental destinations.
Amsterdam Airport serves ample facilitation for a stopover visit. The main terminal is lined with cafes, bars as well as restaurants originating from international chains. The Schiphol Plaza along with a duty-free centre caters for shopping needs for anyone en-route via Amsterdam.
The passenger traffic setting off from the United Kingdom on flights to Zimbabwe is excessive. London houses some of the oldest customers availing cheap flights to Harare, and such additional flights between these two destinations will attend to this clientele from the market.
Zimbabwe’s reliance on air routes to Harare is increasingly tremendous due to the fact that it’s the only major destination near the country’s geographical center. Harare is not only the capital; it also corroborates the commercial and financial hubs of the country within its urban center. Its international airport serves connecting flights to multiple landlocked countries neighboring Zimbabwe.
Furthermore, Harare is not new in its ventures for tourism in its precincts. The industry alone is expected to generate a revenue stream amounting to $5 Billion by 2015. Lake Chivero suffices for water-sports including sailing, jet-skiing and fishing. Venues for getting to witness Africa’s prolific wildlife within the city include the Mukuvisi Woodlands, ‘Wild is Life’ Trust Animal Sanctuary and the Lion and Cheetah Park. Natural landmarks in the vicinity include Ngoma Kurira, Raintree Venue, the Mountain of Drums and the Chriemba Balancing Rocks. Visual arts are on exhibition at the Dendura Gallery, Zimbabwe National Gallery and the Ruwa Sculptures Gallery.
