CAAZ speaks on airport shutdown. Following earlier reports that No Flights were entering or leaving Zimbabwe Airspace over an alleged Air Traffic Controller Strike, The Civil Aviation Authority Of Zimbabwe CAAZ has set the record straight and explained the reason for the temporary suspension of operations earlier today.
PRESS RELEASE ZIMBABWE AIRSPACE REMAINS OPEN AND OPERATIONAL
HARARE, 26 NOVEMBER 2019
The Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ) has noted with concern various media reports suggesting the closure of the Zimbabwean airspace. These reports are inaccurate and meant to cause panic and chaos at our airports and despondency to the travelling public.
Mrs. Margaret Mantiziba, the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ) Acting Director-General, said “This morning (26 November 2019) we experienced an operational problem that resulted in our morning shift failing to arrive on time. This resulted in a delay in dispatching three (3) aircraft departing from the three (3) airports. The operations revert, back to normal, and the airspace remains open and functional adhering to the set standards by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
The CAAZ will continue with its mandate of developing aviation in Zimbabwe and has embarked on a global drive to lure back airlines to Zimbabwe, and also to develop and refurbish airports infrastructure to meet current/future demands and standards. Currently, works are ongoing at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport that will see the airport in league with regional leaders.
