Air Zimbabwe took delivery of its second B777. As for the first, it is an ex B777 of Malaysia Airlines

Some pictures of the delivery of the 2nd B777 (handed over ceremony in Malaysia). Air ZIm has hired Malaysian staff https://www.facebook.com/Asia-AeroTechn ... 1153254931

Some pictures of the 1st B777

https://www.zimlive.com/2020/01/20/air- ... in-harare/

The 1st B777 left for Ethiopian Airlines Maintenance, in April 2020, to carry out heavy maintenance https://nehandaradio.com/2020/04/15/air ... -ethiopia/

And good analysis of a Zimbabwean newspaper. The company will need smaller planes to rebuild a regional network

Airzim’s Boeing 777-200ER needs feeder ‘birds’ [/ b]
