Zambia Airways will commence flights on the Johannesburg route on July 1, Minister of Transport and Logistics Hon. Frank Tayali has announced.
Hon Tayali made the announcement at the official launch of the Zambia Airways central ticketing office located at East Park Mall in Lusaka today.
“It is my pleasure to announce that Zambia Airways will start flights to Johannesburg on 1st July 2022. This maiden flight to South Africa in the first week of July coincides with the upcoming holidays of the Heroes and Unity Days. Indeed, this is the time for New Dawns, new horizons and new developments in Zambia,” he said.
The Minister added that the launch of the airline’s central ticketing office marked another milestone in the journey of the growth of the national carrier, and was a promise of a better experience for customers as they interact with the airline.
He said Zambia Airways had already scored successes, including being the first national airline in Africa to ensure cabin safety using high-technology Ultraviolet-C disinfection robots.
