Flights from South Africa to Victoria Falls

Other than SAA are there other airlines that provide service to Victoria Falls from SA?

Comair (a British Airways affiliate) flies from Joburg to Victoria Falls - you can use either the Victoria Falls airport in Zimbabwe or the Livingstone airport in Zambia. (VFA/LVI)

Try the British Airways website, in top right hand corner 'change country' to South Africa.

Hope it works!

We flew BA to VFA late 2007. I believe BA still fly that route, although it's not a daily service all year round.

You probably already know this, but I will mention it just in case: Before you decide whether to fly into Victoria Falls or into Livingstone, you should decide whether you want to stay in Zimbabwe or Zambia, and then fly into the airport serving that side of the falls. You will save yourself time and money by doing so.

Also, when we were in VFA last October, Air Zimbabwe was cancelling flights on a very regular basis, because they couldn't get fuel. BA was fueling up in Johannesburg, flying into VFA, making a quick turnaround and flying back to JNB the same afternoon because of the fuel situation. I don't know if this is still the case but it's worth checking into.

We flew into Livingstone with BA on Wednesday, but then unbeknown to us they changed our departure flight to Victoria Falls airport yesterday.
We were not happy - and $55 dollars per head poorer!!!
