Transport and Logistics Minister says investment into the Zambia airline represents government commitment to deepen and strengthen the country’s value chain development agenda.

Speaking when he launched the Zambia airline, the Minister said the establishment of the national airline will spur growth in the tourism and export sectors.

Mr Tayali said the airline will have significant multiple effort on job creation through different businesses in the aviation sector supply chains.

He said the development also signifies improved accessibility to tourists attraction for tourists.

Mr Tayali said this will ensure the full utilisation of airport facilities and transformation of Zambia into a transitional hub.

“We accept being a government of a land linked country, but we will not accept to be sky locked, our full support is granted to Zambia airways through assured innovative and effective aviation sub sector policies and strategies,” he said.

Mr Tayali also said the commercial airline has been established to promote competition in the aviation industry, as opposed to assertions that the airline has been established to kill competition.

“What we are witnessing here today is proof on the committee towards making the Zambian economy work effectively and competitive to sustainably lift the living standards of the Zambian people,” he said.

Mr Tayali has since called for excellency from all workers, especially the customer care personnel.
