June 2008: The government of Zimbabwe is planning to boost the national carrier's fleet ahead of the 2010 Soccer World Cup finals, to be hosted by South Africa. The Minister of Transport & Communications, Cde Chis Mushohwe said Air Zimbabwe currently has eight airplanes for its domestic and international routes. He said the government was looking at acquiring five long-haul airplanes, including two passenger models and three freighters. The freighters would be used to revive Affretair (AFF), the former cargo arm of (ZMB). This presumably accounts for the recent order for one Ilyushin Il-96-300 passenger airplane and two Il-96-400F. The government also wants (ZMB) to develop its regional operations and confirmed (ZMB)'s interest in 737-900s and also the 105-seat ARJ21-900, being developed jointly by AVIC 1 of China and Bombardier Aerospace.
