Air Zimbabwe resumes domestic operations

Air Zimbabwe (Harare) with government assistance has resumed domestic operations again according to this report by The Standard. Previously the national flag carrier had relaunched domestic operations on May 2, 2012 (still on their website) until July 2012. The report also states the airline is planning to resume international operations today (November 4) (believed to be to Johannesburg).

The government of Zimbabwe has reportedly assumed the debt of the carrier.

Also according to the report, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is ready to “cooperate” with the struggling carrier.

Air North brings the Boeing 737 to northern Yukon for the first time

Air North (Whitehorse), Yukon’s Airline, on September 5 announced that for the first time its flight 307/308 from Whitehorse to Dawson City, Old Crow and Inuvik was operated by a Boeing 737 aircraft. The inaugural flight also marked the first time a Boeing 737 had ever landed in Dawson City.

The recent acquisition of a second Boeing 737-500 gave the airline greater flexibility with its fleet – combined with efforts on the part of the Yukon Government to prepare Dawson City and Old Crow airports for jet service, that allowed for the first flight to take place.

The aircraft that flew the route was the airline’s Boeing 737-200 Combi, which is equipped with a $1 million gravel kit to allow for service into unpaved airports such as Dawson City and Old Crow. The aircraft also boasts a large cargo door in the forward cabin, allowing Air North to transport much larger goods into the two communities. Future jet flights will be flown when cargo and passenger service warrant the larger aircraft.

Just over 12 years ago, the Vuntut Development Corporation purchased a stake in Air North. At the time that took place, there were no plans for the airline to purchase jets or fly south of Whitehorse. Now, the airline connects Old Crow, Dawson City, Inuvik and Whitehorse to the three gateway cities of Vancouver, Edmonton, and Calgary – and is able to provide far greater service and reach than what was feasible at the time of investment made by the VDC and the 1,500 other Yukon shareholders that invested in the company.

Frontier Airlines celebrates its 18th birthday anniversary

Frontier Airlines (2nd) (Denver) turns 18 on Thursday (July 5). The second version of “Frontier” is celebrating by offering a 18% discount off its domestic airfares for two days. The birthday fare sale – which starts today (July 3) and continues through Thursday (July 5) – features 18% savings on travel through mid-November to all of the airline’s destinations across the lower 48 states.

The 18% discount applies to regular and sale fares for travel July 24 through Nov. 14, 2012.

With just a handful of employees, many from the original Frontier Airlines, and a couple of Boeing 737-200s (see above), Colorado’s hometown airline took to the skies on July 5, 1994, from Denver’s old Stapleton Airport. From that small start, the airline with the animals on its tails has spread its wings far and wide – offering service to more than 70 destinations in the United States, Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. Frontier now employs 5,000 aviation professionals, operating from its hub at Denver International Airport.
