Air Zimbabwe has resumed regional flights after they were grounded for most of last year due to COVID-19 and operational challenges.

A recently acquired Embraer plane will be plying the Harare Johannesburg route.

In an advert in today's local newspapers, the airline announced that services between Harare and Johannesburg will resume on 1 September 2021.

Harare - Johannesburg - Harare route will cost from USD 160 one way and from USD 250 return whilst the Johannesburg -  Harare - Johannesburg route will cost from ZAR 1880 one way and from ZAR 3150 return.

Currently, the domestic services are in full swing with flights from Harare to Victoria Falls, via Bulawayo, four times a week.

The airline, which is saddled with huge debts, suspended its domestic flights last year due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

In March, the government launched a vaccination drive in Victoria Falls to create herd immunity and encourage tourists to come back.

Other airlines, like Fastjet and Airlink, have already resumed flights into the resort city.
