Air Zimbabwe does NOT resume flights
by: Tony

Well as could have possibly been predicted, Air Zimbabwe did not resume these flights this week.

Workers still demanding outstanding wages went on strike again. I am struggling to understand why the chief acting officer of Air Zimbabwe Innocent Mavhunga, who is surely an intelligent man, thought that the airline would resume its flight when it still owes US$35 million to its employees for back pay in wages and salaries oustanding since 2009.

Air Zimbabwe has to find the money to pay these workers before they will take to the air again. Trouble is the reputation of the airline is so tarnished now, that I can't believe that anyone would get on one of those planes even if they did start flying again.

They need to close the airline down completely and rebuild it under new management and a new name.

Air Zimbabwe has confirmed that it is grounded indefinitely after the failure of its revival effort last week.

"I can confirm all flights are suspended. We are grounded indefinitely," Air Zimbabwe chief executive, Innocent Mavhunga, told AFP.

The airline last week announced that it had reinstated its domestic flights and that passengers were to check in as normal, however disgruntled pilots did not return work.

"Pilots did not come to commence operations. We are waiting for the government, which is our major shareholder, to intervene. Our issue is in the domain of Cabinet. We are just waiting for their intervention," Mavhunga said.

The airline’s pilots have staged several walkouts since last year over unpaid salaries.
