Zimbabwe welcomes Oman and Sri-Lanka’s air services
The Zimbabwean Information, Media and Broadcasting Services cabinet has recently approved to sign bilateral air service agreements with Oman Air and Sri Lankan Airlines, Bulawayo24 has reported.
Oman, officially the Sultanate of Oman, is an Arab country on the south-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia, whereas Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon), is an island nation south of India in the Indian Ocean.
The signing will allow the two countries respectively to provide airlines between capital Harare in Zimbabwe in a move to make it accessible to the wider world.
Zimbabwean Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Cabinet Minister, Monica Mutsvangwa, said the agreement will boost both travel and trade, which is aligned to President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s initiative.
“The agreements provide a governing framework for the operation of air transport services, thereby boosting travel and trade between Zimbabwe and the two countries,” said Mutsvangwa.
“This is part of Government’s efforts to engage and re-engage with the international community thereby fulfilling the mantra that “Zimbabwe is open for business.”
The Oman airlines currently flies to more than 50 destinations across the world.
Sri Lankan Airlines has a fleet of 27 planes and currently flies to 114 destinations worldwide.
Meanwhile, Air Tanzania has opened an airline that will fly from its major city and commercial port on Tanzania’s Indian Ocean coast to Harare.
