Zimbabwe Government Urged To Help National Airline

The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) has called on the government to subsidise the national airline, Air Zimbabwe, to allow it to re-introduce its regional and international flights.

The call by ZTA comes after KLM Royal Dutch airline announced last week that it was withdrawing from Zimbabwe and Zambia services at the end of October. The Dutch carrier resumed its Harare flights two years ago after having pulled out for more than a decade.

Air Zimbabwe is also encouraged to also look at how they can quickly re-introduce and re-develop the European routes.

Currently 16 airlines including KLM land at Harare international airport.
