Low-cost airline flyafrica Zimbabwe is set to take off once more with a relaunch scheduled within the next two weeks.
According to Tourism Update, operations will begin – or resume – with a route from Harare to Bulawayo to Victoria Falls.
The airline ceased all operations back in October 2015 after having its operating license withdrawn by the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe.
The CAAZ cited a failure to meet several regulations as reason for the withdrawal. Coupled with well-publicised shareholder disputes, the airline has had no option to remain grounded – until now.
Tourism Update adds that chairperson Cassidy Mugwagwa has invested R85-million into the airline ahead of the relaunch, with plans for a Harare – Johannesburg route in the pipeline.
Late last year, the publication reported that flyafrica intended to partner with an SA airline to facilitate this route, but no official announcement has been made as yet.
