Air Zimbabwe ceases operations

News reports state that Air Zimbabwe (UM) has ceased operations, an airline representative confirmed to ATW. The airline failed to secure a rescue plan, AFP reported Friday.

“I can confirm all flights are suspended. We are grounded indefinitely,” UM CEO Innocent Mavhunga told AFP.

According to the newswire, one of its planes was impounded in London for more than two weeks last year over a $1.2 million debt dispute with a US spares company, prompting the airline to suspend flights to neighboring South Africa over another debt of $500,000 fearing creditors might impound more of its aircraft.
