Air Zimbabwe has confirmed that it has resumed flights to South Africa after a suspension instituted by Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) last week over unpaid fees.

In a statement, ACSA said the airline had failed to pay landing and parking fees, passenger service charges and an undisclosed amount towards clearing its arrears.

“There were negotiations that were held, and we were given clearance to take off and land on Friday. It (Air Zimbabwe’s plane) did take off for South Africa today as scheduled,” Air Zimbabwe spokesman Tafadzwa Mazonde told Reuters.

He declined to say whether Air Zimbabwe had cleared its debt or come to another arrangement.
