Rainbow Airlines defer launch plans following complications with paperwork.

The start-up had planned to launch on 26th August with Harare International to Johannesburg O.R. Tambo flights using a Boeing B737-300.  
The airline released a statement saying: “This has come about through some changes in legislature which has directly affected issuance of Rainbow Airlines’ documents for operational purposes. Our handlers have advised us to postpone the launch whilst the application process is being concluded.”
Rainbow secured its Air Operator Certificate from the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe in February.

Despite the deferred launch, Rainbow is determined in its plans to expand in the future.
