Zimbabwe's national airline has resumed daily domestic flights as well as regional flights to Johannesburg, as it attempts to repair its image and service.
The past few years have seen Air Zimbabwe face almost total collapse, with a series of strikes by its staff and massive debts, which saw an airplane be impounded in London.
The national flag carrier was then suspended last September from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for failing to comply with global safety standards.
But it appears the airline is trying to get back on track.
Daily domestic flights between Harare and Bulawayo, Harare and Victoria Falls and Bulawayo and Victoria Falls resumed on Friday last week. The daily flights to Johannesburg began this week.
Air Zimbabwe chief Innocent Mavhunga said the return to daily flights between Harare and Bulawayo ahead of an international trade fair, which will be held at the end of this month in Bulawayo, would help boost business and increase the airline's profitability.
"The daily flights will continue, even after the international trade fair, in an effort to stimulate activity on the routes, which is commensurate with our plans to revive the airline," said Mavhunga.
He continued: "We will use a combination of the Boeing 737 and other smaller aircraft for the domestic flights, depending on the load. The Bulawayo plane would facilitate the smooth movement of people to and from the trade fair."
