Zimbabwe's flag carrier, Air Zimbabwe, is planning to resume flights between Harare International Airport (HRE) in Harare and London. The airline has applied for a route licence and is awaiting the UK authority's response. Once Air Zimbabwe got the green light to service the route, the date of resumption of flights on the Harare <> London route will be announced.
Air Zimbabwe was forced to stop the service to London about four years ago after creditors in the UK threatened to seize the airline's planes over debts. Air Zimbabwe is now in talks with the UK air navigation agency to clear the US$2.8m debt.
