Air Zimbabwe Suspends Flights

In a statement, national airline, Air Zimbabwe said it has suspended flights up to mid-month due to maintenance works being carried out on its only functioning plane.

The airline, which has largely been operating only two serviceable aircraft, was left with one following the grounding of the popular Mbuya Nehanda last month. The remaining aircraft, the 767-200ER, also known as Chimanimani is undergoing servicing. Air Zimbabwe said it had made other travel arrangements for customers who had booked flights in advance but is not taking any bookings up to January 15. Part of the statement reads:

Air Zimbabwe wishes to advise its valued customers of a schedule disruption due to minor component upgrade on the B767-200 ER from 11 to 15 January 2019. We wish to assure all valued customers who are holding confirmed and ticketed bookings within the mentioned dates that alternative arrangements have been made in order to ensure minimum disruptions to their travel plans.

The airline said affected passengers will be contacted via email, telephone or SMS with information on alternative arrangements for their travel. In an interview yesterday, Air Zimbabwe corporate affairs manager, Mr Tafadzwa Mazonde said they had made alternative arrangements with other airlines.

  1. What is good in Zimbabwe? The country has become a scrapyard,all foreign old cars are in the streets of Zimbabwe.Lokhu abakwenzayo bazocuya eyinye indiza balungise eyinye.Yonke indawo nje konakele,ddf,zrp,zna,zps,kuzanu of basaqhubeka bafaka amakhehla,abantu abagulayo,abantu abangaphilile kahle emakhanda(Charamba).Liyabona ukuthi akukho okuhamba kahle.

  2. I personally think our beloved country should invest in flight trnsport. This because our ministers like travelling and thats where all the money is going. At least you wont have to hire from other countries. Healthcare sector is the other department that need to a proper work done. Its embarrassing to see ministers to go outside the country for treatment. I dont know how you guys do it. You are a world’s laugh. Please do something about it. Healthcare department is a good investment if a working healthcare. People from other countries will be coming for treatment as well if you invest on it. Look now we all go to South Africa for treatment for free. Yet Zimbabweans cant be treated for free in their own home.
