Which airlines offer flights to Zimbabwe?
There are regional airlines who still fly to Zimbabwe. These include Air Malawi, Kenyan Airways and South African Airways. According to iol Travel, Emirates Airline will offer flights five days a week between Zimbabwe, Zambia and Dubai in 2012.

In February 2012, Emirates will commence services five days a week from Harare and Lusaka to Dubai,” said an advert placed by Emirates Group looking for staff to run the new flight operations. Air Zimbabwe cut down their services because of employees constantly striking.

Huge debts are also a cause of the cut back in flight numbers as the company tries to maintain their ageing fleet. Pilots of Air Zimbabwe went on strike for over five months in 2011 in protest of unpaid salaries and allowances.

The airline currently holds debt of about $100 million. A handful of  international airlines, including EgyptAir, Air France, KLM, Lufthansa and Quantas have put an end to flights to Zimbabwe because of dwindling passenger numbers.
