 Air Botswana resumes flights into Zambia

By Kasabo Kalusa in Botswana
Air Botswana is set to resume flights into Zambia after a 2 year hiatus.

In a communique to the Zambian Mission in Gaborone, Botswana’s national flag carrier is set to hit the Zambian skies with a maiden flight scheduled for March 31, 2019.

Air Botswana says increased commercial activities and movements of people between the two countries has resulted in the airline resuming its flights into Zambia.

And Zambia’s Deputy High Commissioner to Botswana Goodwell Lungu said the resumption of direct flights by Air Botswana demonstrates the increased areas of economic cooperation between the two countries.

Mr Lungu said Botswana is a key partner in economic, trade & investment as highlighted with a number of other developments such as the ongoing construction of the mega Kazungula Bridge Project between the two SADC countries.

Air Botswana has informed the Zambian Mission it will operate a jet service with a 70 seater capacity with flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
