“We had targeted the beginning of July but there are new licensing requirements from the UK and the EU. We will know the exact dates as soon as we satisfy those requirements,” marketing manager Chrsitopher Kwenda said.
This undertaking follows on from positive developments in recent years. In 2014 the airline resumed flights on the Harare-Johannesburg route after clearing debts with some South African creditors and two weeks ago it re-introduced Tuesday and Saturday flights on the Harare-Dar es Salaam route after a seven-year absence.
Kwenda said Air Zimbabwe was working on resuming most of the routes that were suspended during a time when it was facing challenges.
