Our Services

Air Zimbabwe Cargo transports general cargo, perishables, live animals, dangerous goods, medicaments and special commodities.

General Cargo

All and any type of general cargo can be airlifted on Air Zimbabwe flights. This also includes unaccompanied baggage for passengers over the permitted weight during check-in. However, no dangerous goods are allowed in the unaccompanied baggage.


This category of cargo needs utmost care on acceptance, warehousing, and loading/off-loading with the sole aim of reaching the intended destination in good condition.

Live Animals

We ensure reliable transportation of live animals through our experienced Ground Handlers who follow the dictates of the IATA Live Animals Regulations which specify the animal or container type to be used, accompanying documents and any other requirements.

Dangerous Goods

These are articles or substances capable of posing a risk to health, safety, property or the environment and are transported on the principles as guided by the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. The highly trained personnel both on ground and in air ensure such cargo complies with required standards for safe and secure transportation.


We guarantee that this type of cargo and other special commodities which demand temperature controlled environments are accorded such service from land to air to ensure a smooth logistical supply chain.


Air Zimbabwe Cargo Services utilises belly space of Air Zimbabwe passenger flights for cargo carriage.

Our Fleet & ULDs

With an array of dedicated passenger aircrafts, Air Zimbabwe conveys cargo to its consignees in whole despite the size and weight. This has been supported by the availability of unit load devices designed to accommodate any type of freight on the available aircraft.
