Air Zimbabwe to acquire more equipment for route expansion

By Justin Mahlahla

National carrier, Air Zimbabwe says it seeks to expand its route coverage in 2022, with a plan for one intercontinental and two regional destinations while frequencies on the current domestic and regional schedule will also be increased.

Air Zimbabwe Chief Executive Officer Tafadzwa Zaza said in a New Year message to customers that they also expect to resume flights to Bulawayo from Johannesburg.

“Tourists and traders to Dar es Salaam will also have the convenience to connect either BUQ/HRE/DAR or VFA/HRE/DAR return three times weekly,” Zaza said.

He said additional equipment is expected early this year to augment the current fleet.

“We also expect to take delivery of additional equipment before the end of first quarter 2022 to augment our current fleet. This will allow us flexibility to increase ad hoc passenger and charter operations to domestic, regional and intercontinental destinations.”

Last year, Air Zimbabwe managed to resume full scheduled operations, although phased with minimum disruptions due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

“We can attribute [this] to the goodwill from the vaccination programmes which have boosted passenger confidence to fly again. It is this confidence boost that has given us wings to position for 2022,” he noted.
