flyafricaThe launch of Flyafrica.com’s maiden flight edges nearer as the Zimbabwe-based LCC has been issued with its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ).

Annajulia Hungwe, spokesperson for CAAZ, told Tourism Update flyafrica.com has a fleet of five B737-500 aircraft. The airline is expected to commence flights mid-July with operations to Victoria Falls and Johannesburg.

But a spokesperson for the Department of Transport in South Africa said the airline had yet to apply for route approvals by the relevant governments under the Bilateral Air Services Agreements.

Meanwhile, Flyafrica.com remains tightlipped about the details of the airline’s progress. Adrian Hamilton-Manns, Project Leader of flyafrica.com told Tourism Update he would only be in a position to share news about the launch date in coming weeks.
