Frequently asked questions about flying to Zanzibar

How long does it take to fly to Zanzibar City?

You can catch flights to Zanzibar City, Zanzibar, from several UK cities. Frequent flights leave from London and Manchester, while most flights from Scotland leave from Edinburgh. There isn’t a big difference in travel time between the quicker flights out of all three cities. One of the fastest one-stop trips from London takes just over 12h, and you can fly from Manchester in a tad over 12h 30min, making one stop as well. The faster flights out of Edinburgh take around 14h 15min, and these are the most common ones you’ll find.

Where can you fly directly to Zanzibar City from?

Unfortunately, direct flights from the UK to Zanzibar City are not currently available, so you’ll make at least one stop on all flights on this route. A very common – and fast – route from London departs Heathrow Airport (LHR) on Turkish Airlines. You’ll stop over at Istanbul Airport (IST) and fly on to arrive at Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, Zanzibar, previously and still more commonly known as Zanzibar Kisauni Airport (ZNZ). A few flights are also available from Stansted Airport (STN) and London Gatwick (LGW), but these are few and far between in any given week. Turkish Airlines also operates most of the flights from Manchester Airport (MAN). These fly an identical route as those out of Heathrow. Two slightly longer options are to leave from Heathrow on Qatar Airways, stopping at Doha International Airport (DOH) en route, or Ethiopian Air, stopping at Addis Ababa. Flying from Edinburgh also requires at least one stopover: you’ll most often leave from Edinburgh Turnhouse Airport (EDI) on Qatar Airways, travelling via Doha.
