LUFTHANSA Group’s leisure airline, Eurowings Discover, has commenced operations in the resort city of Victoria Falls.

Its first flight touched down in Zimbabwe for the very first time on Wednesday.

The carrier departed from Frankfurt, Germany, on March 29 with an Airbus A330 and arrived at Victoria Falls International Airport at 11.15am.

Captain Wolfgang Raebiger, who is also the CEO of the new airline, operated the flight, which was welcomed by a water salute.

The event was graced by special guests including Germany Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Udo Volz.

Said Captain Raebiger: “This flight marks a special milestone for our airline Eurowings Discover. We are proud to be the first intercontinental airline offering direct flights to Victoria Falls as of today.

“It has never been easier for travellers from all over Europe to get to know this beautiful country, its culture and kind-hearted people and, of course, the stunning natural wonder Victoria Falls.

“Our booking figures show that travellers from all over Europe are increasingly drawn to the vastness and beauty of the African continent and we are convinced that they will value Victoria Falls as a great and unique addition to our portfolio.”

Eurowings Discover operates three weekly direct connections from Frankfurt to Victoria Falls in 2022, with return flights on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
