Air Zimbabwe now taking ZiG to book flights

In another interesting development that is set to prop up the newly introduced currency,              Air Zimbabwe has become the latest airline to accept ZiG payments for ticket purchases, days after low-cost airline Fastjet Zimbabwe, began accepting payments in the gold-backed currency.

The national airliner announced the development via its social media pages, saying the move “reflects our commitment to adapt to the evolving financial landscape”. Reads the statement:

We are pleased to advise that Air Zimbabwe accepts ZiG payments for ticket purchases through our sales offices.

This move reflects our commitment to adapt to the evolving financial landscape and offer our stakeholders convenient payment options.

As we integrate Zimbabwe Gold currency into our payment systems, we are finalizing the process for its acceptance on our online payment platform.

We understand the importance of providing seamless and secure online transactions, and we are working diligently to ensure that this option is available to our valued customers.

Air Zimbabwe remains dedicated to providing excellent service to our passengers while embracing innovative solutions that benefit both our customers and the economy.

We appreciate the continued support of our stakeholders as we navigate these changes together.
