Air Zimbabwe Suspends All Flights Indefinitely

Air Zimbabwe, the national carrier in Zimbabwe, has announced that it is suspending all flights indefinitely.  CEO for the airline, Innocent Mavhunga, has confirmed this.  The airline had hopes of getting their planes off the ground this week, but they have not been able to convince their pilots to return to work.  Their pilots walked off the job last week after not being paid their wages.

The airline says the situation is in the hands of the government now, which is the major shareholder in the airline.  They are waiting for the cabinet to intervene.  The airline has been struggling for years, with pilot strikes and increasing debt.  A debt of $1.2 million owed to a US spares company caused one of their planes to be impounded in London last year.  This prompted the airline to suspend flights to South Africa, to whom they owed a debt of $500,000.
