Robert Gabriel Mugabe International, previously knowns as Harare International Airport is the main and largest airport in Zimbabwe and the current hub for Air Zimbabwe, FastJet Zimbabwe and will be the future hub of Emerald Airlines.
The airport opened in 1957 and has traditionally only been served by African carriers, due to the lack of tourism in Zimbabwe. Currently, the only non-African airlines to serve the airport are British Airways and Emirates.
