airzim pilots on strike 08-09-10.jpgAir Zimbabwe which yesterday failed to service its routes after pilots went on industrial action has resumed flights today.
The pilots went on strike late Friday demanding their outstanding salaries forcing the National Airline to ground its aircrafts.

In an interview with ZBC News in the capital, Air Zimbabwe Board Chairman, Mr. Jonathan Kadzura confirmed that pilots temporarily withdrew their services demanding outstanding salaries and allowances but added that they have since been paid and have since resumed their duties.

Sources within the airline say the pilots had not been paid their salaries for over two months.

When this News crew arrived at the Harare International Airport, some Air Zimbabwe planes had left for different destinations in the region and beyond while others were due to land.

The latest action by workers comes as a blow to the National Airline which only resumed operations on Monday following some weeks of inactivity as planes had been grounded after a disagreement with the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe over the planes’ lifespan.
