Rainbow Airlines applies for Zimbabwe air services permit

Posted 30 April 2013 · Add Comment

Reports are coming out of Zimbabwe that a new carrier has applied to the country's aviation licensing board, seeking permission to start both domestic and regional flights.

Rainbow Airlines looks set to join Zimbabwe's growing list of privately-backed carriers seeking to exploit the country's under-served and overpriced domestic and regional markets.

According to NewsDay, no precise routes have yet been divulged.

"Notice is hereby given that Rainbow Airlines (Private) Limited, has applied to the Air Services Board for the issue of an Air Services permit to provide commercial scheduled and non-scheduled air services for the carriage of passengers and cargo on local, regional and international routes,” reads the Government Gazette in part.

National carrier Air Zimbabwe resumed daily domestic flights between Harare and Bulawayo, Harare and Victoria Falls and Bulawayo and Victoria Falls as well as daily flights to Johannesburg earlier this month.
