Just wondering what the current status of Air Zimbabwe is/was...

I know Wikipedia is nothing to go by, but I noticed a couple of unusual things:

On the page for "Harare Airport", it seems to think that Air Zimbabwe is operating domestically and is back to London in July.

On the page for "Gatwick Airport", it is mentioned that Air Zimbabwe is flying LGW-HRE in July.

On the "Air Zimbabwe" page, the airline is considered as dead with no mentions about current flying.

And nothing at all makes sense on http://www.airzimbabwe.aero/

Any ideas?

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.

Quoting Tobias2702 (Reply 1):
727s

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.
