South African Airways has received clearance to commence operations between South Africa and Zimbabwe. Flights between the two countries will resume. Flights between South Africa and Zimbabwe were affected yesterday due to flight restrictions imposed by the Zimbabwean authorities on operations.
The decision to impose the restriction was based on the requirement from Zimbabwean authorities for SAA to have a Foreign Operators Permit (FOP) to operate in that country.
The airline had to cancel operations between Johannesburg, Harare and Vic Falls.
Since the grounding of SAA’s aircraft in Harare yesterday, the airline prepared and submitted all required documentation in compliance with the instruction from the Zimbabwean authorities.
Following the clearance and approval received, SAA started recovering its schedule.
SA025 which was grounded yesterday will depart this morning at 10h00.
