Air Zimbabwe Plane Impounded In South Africa

An Air Zimbabwe plane was impounded by the Airports Company of South Africa (Acsa) at Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport on Wednesday.

The plane, the airline’s only operational aircraft after all of its planes were grounded, is a Boeing 767-200. Air Zimbabwe spokesperson Tafadzwa Mazonde confirmed the development. He said:

That’s what is happening. It’s a temporary suspension over a cumulative debt. We are in discussion with our shareholder and we are hopeful that we will find a solution.

Air Zimbabwe owes Acsa payments for landing, parking and passenger service fees for flights into Johannesburg.

In the past, Air Zimbabwe had aircraft seized by creditors, including Bid Air Services in South Africa and American General Suppliers in London, for debts which it had neglected to pay.

  1. Classic current Zimbabwe/ZanuPF behavior. Pay your fucking bills, otherwise nothing will work. That’s why Zim is fucked at the moment.
