AIR Zimbabwe’s Embraer ERJ145 purchased from the United States of America has arrived.
The aircraft is expected to undergo inspections before it starts servicing some of the airline routes. In a statement Air Zimbabwe head of public relations, Mrs Firstme Vitori said:
The 50-seater jet is expected to go through the local registration process as well as all mandatory checks, tests and certification before it enters into service within the next 21 days. All crew and engineers licensed for the aircraft have been drawn from within the current human capital pool, a sign of the high level of competent skills available in Zimbabwe.
Air Zimbabwe intends to service its debt by disposing redundant and obsolete equipment which includes aircrafts and spare parts for equipment which is no longer in service. Recently, there were reports in the media suggesting that the airline was left with only one plane servicing many routes.
