TRAVEL GAZETTE – THE government in Zimbabwe has received a Boeing 777 aircraft from Malaysia – part of an envisaged fleet of 10 aeroplanes to be managed under a new company tasked to boost the local aviation sector, reports Bulawayo 24.

The jetliner is wholly owned by Government’s special purpose vehicle, Zimbabwe Aviation Leasing Company, which, in turn, is leasing the aircraft to Zimbabwe Airways.

Zimbabwe Airways is also owned by Government and was formed to give Air Zimbabwe – choking under a $300 million debt – time to come back to its feet and recover from its debts.
