News reports on the radio in South Africa are stating that UM has been "suspended from IATA" due to unpaid debts.

This means that travel agents are not able to book UM flights.

What future for UM?

Quite interesting. The solutions are either to go all online or to settle the debts with IATA. For an airline from a region wit low internet penetration, the latter is obviously the best.

The opinions above are solely my own and do not express those of my employers or clients.

They cannot come up with USD 280 K for IATA, but are absolutely confident that they can finance two new A340-500. Only in Zimbabwe..

Zambia Airways was also able to muddle through for quite some time in the early nineties, but when IATA kicked them out, they took a turn fo the worse and never recovered.
