Zim to get its first budget airline

 
Harare - Air Zimbabwe plans to resume flying the Bulawayo to Johannesburg route in December as the airline continues its re-penetration process into the routes it had stopped servicing in December 2011.
 
Air Zim spokesperson Shingai Taruvinga said the airline is on a campaign to re-launch the routes it once serviced.  
 
The airline currently flies the Harare-Johannesburg route four times a week, and plans are in place to increase this to a daily flight.

“AirZim will gradually increase frequencies on the current routes until it is back on its normal schedule. The rest of its regional and international routes will be re-introduced in phases,” said Taruvinga.
 
The Jo’burg flight is currently running a promotional fare of $317 return (economy) against +$500 of the nearest competitors. Currently the plane - a Boeing 767-200 - flies on a growing 60% capacity.
 
Taruvinga said the airline had put in place a payment plan to clear the London debt, which will see flights to the city resume early next year. The South African debt has since been cleared.
 
However the airline is still using the manual check-in system as World Span had not yet cleared them following a year's absence.
 
Zimbabwe Tourism Authority CE Karikoga Kaseke said Zimbabwe was not getting any share of the $30m a month revenue on the South Africa route as all of it was going to the international airlines.
