Flights between SA, Zimbabwe resume

Civil aviation authorities in SA and Zimbabwe are insisting that this now lifted-flight ban had nothing to do with politics.

JOHANNESBURG - Flights between South Africa and Zimbabwe have resumed after disruptions that inconvenienced hundreds of travellers.

Aviation authorities on both sides of the border said the weekend disruptions had nothing to do with politics.

Air passengers on both sides of the border have breathed a sigh of relief.

The state Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation tweeted a picture on Sunday afternoon of an SAA plane landing in Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, apparently signalling the resumption of flights both ways.

British Airways flights were also reportedly caught up in the drama.

The ban came at the end of a testing week for diplomatic relations between the two countries, and it will do little to help Zimbabwe’s already struggling tourism industry.
