AIR Zimbabwe pilots called off their month-long strike on Wednesday, and international flights were set to resume immediately, an official said.

The state-owned airline's general manager for Europe, David Mwenga, said: "An agreement has been reached with pilots, and the Harare office will outline the details later.

"I however want to let our customers know that the flag is flying again, and there will be a London flight tonight from Harare. The plane will turn back on Thursday, marking a return to the normal flight schedule."

Air Zimbabwe pilots have been on strike since March 22, pressing for outstanding pay and allowances. The airline had insisted it was broke, and unable to pay the US$4 million arrears.

Pilots had also demanded an improvement in conditions of service, including the acquisition of new airplanes to make the airline competitive again.

Air Zimbabwe announced on Monday it had acquired a new B737-500 on a long lease agreement, but airline bosses insist the entire fleet may need phasing out, including its two B767s which ply international routes.
