Air Zimbabwe’s acting CEO, Innocent Mavhunga, has told Tourism Update that the airline will soon be plying several international routes, one of them the re-implementation of the Harare – Johannesburg route.
He said from November 5, the airline will fly four frequencies a week between those two points, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. These flights will be flown on a B767, said Mavhunga, and when the route equipment is replaced with an A320 in December this year, the carrier will then conduct daily flights.
Since April 2012, Air Zimbabwe has been operating three frequencies a week between Harare and Bulawayo and Harare and Vic Falls.Mavhunga says these will become daily flights early in December. He also mentioned the airline is now looking at reintroducing some of its old favourites: flights from Harare to Lusaka, Dar es Salaam, Nairobi and Lumbumbashi.
In addition, a restructuring of the airline is underway. “Good news for SA corporates is Air Zimbabwe intends to regain its expired Iosa accreditation with an audit planned for the end of November. Once this status is regained, the airline will have Iata-approved safety standards,” concluded Mavhunga.
