The Zimbabwean Information, Media and Broadcasting Services cabinet has approved to sign bilateral air service agreements with Oman Air and Sri Lankan Airlines, African Daily Voice reported.
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.”
Sri Lankan Airlines has a fleet of 27 planes and currently flies to 114 destinations worldwide. (Colombo Gazette)
