In my April blog post, I thought Air Zimbabwe maybe was gone for good. I did foreshadow though that:
- the Government formed a new State-owned company, Air Zimbabwe Pvt Ltd, dissolving Air Zimbabwe Holdings i
- the Transport Minister announced that they had leased an A320 for use on regional routes
- staff had begun re training
Now we know. Air Zimbabwe have announced that they will be flying between Harare, the capital and Bulawayo, the country’s second biggest city and Victoria Falls, probably, the country’s top tourist destination. Four days a week. And they need a 1000+ employees for this? Not exactly a financially viable option. It is also a comedown from an airline that used to fly across Africa, to Europe and to Asia. Welcome back (?) Air Zimbabwe.
