According to Wikipedia, Air Zimbabwe "was an airline". I think this is wrong, they have just been grounded for a time. According to ch-aviation (which I tend to trust more than Wikipedia), it currently operates some domestic flights with its 727s. By April 1, it was announced to relaunch the Harare-Johannesburg route using two A320s, and the Gatwick flights are indeed intended to be resumed by 1 July.
B737-200Adv. is the aircraft type they use on the domestic flights right now. They use the B767-200(ER) to Johannesburg. I think what they have announced might still be very optimistic, but at least they have been able to take baby steps by resuming domestic operations, then resuming Johannesburg with a wet-leased South African 762 and now having been able to resume own JNB ops without the aircraft being impounded replacing the wet-lease aircraft.
