June 2008: Air Corridor (ACZ) has suspended operations and may never fly again. Both of its 737-200s are grounded in South Africa with serious safety problems. Local reports suggest the company's air operator certificate (AOC) could be withdrawn by the Mozambique Civil Aviation Institute, grounding the airline permanently. (ACZ) last flew in January this year. At that time one of its 737-200s was already undergoing repair in Johannesburg, leaving it only one operational airplane. The second airplane then suffered a bird strike at Nampula airport, forcing the airline to cancel all flights. Aeronexus, the South African company contracted to repair both airplanes, notified the Mozambique authorities that problems went far beyond a simple bird strike. Aeronexus noted that (ACZ) had no record of the routine repairs and inspections of its airplanes. The lack of certified maintenance is a serious matter and calls into question the safety of the airplanes and the airline's fitness to operate.

(ACZ) is the flagship company of the Gulamo Group, a business based in Nampula. It began operating domestic routes in competition with the state-owned Mozambique Airlines (LAM) four years ago, offering much lower fares than (LAM). In December 2004, the USA Embassy issued a note forbidding any of its staff from travelling on (ACZ) airplanes, due to safety concerns. The company protested vigorously, and in February 2007, the embassy lifted its ban.
