Air Zimbabwe to Resume Direct Harare-London Flights



Zimbabwe national carrier, Air Zimbabwe (AirZim) is reportedly planning to resume flights on the Harare-London route this year after a four-year hiatus, management has said.


AirZim acting passenger and cargo general manager Christopher Kwenda said the company had initially anticipated to resume plying the lucrative route beginning of July, but had to contend with a later date due to licensing delays after London and the European Union (EU) introduced new aviation licensing requirements.


“We had targeted the 1st of July, but now there are new requirements from the UK and the EU. We will know the exact dates as soon as we satisfy those requirements because we also have to start selling the route once we get the green light,” Kwenda said.


AirZim acting CE Edmund Makona said the national flag carrier had already submitted all the necessary paperwork required by British authorities.


“The airline has submitted all the necessary paperwork for the route licence as is required by London authorities and is still waiting their approval to commence operations. Once the route licence has been issued, we will then advise the exact date for the flights resumption,” Makona said.


Air Zim was forced to terminate the route in 2012 and is now negotiating to clear a US$2, 8 million debt owed to London navigation agency.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
