Mahogany Air resumes ops

KABANDA CHULU, Lusaka
MAHOGANY Air, which suspended operations two months ago, is expected to resume operations on December 1this year after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) completes upgrading the airline’s documentation.
The recently established CAA, which has replaced the Department of Civil Aviation is currently upgrading documents of all airlines from air service permits to air operative certificates in line with its mandate.
Mahogany Air chief executive officer Jim Belemu said in yesterday that the airline that suspended operations after sending the only plane it has to South Africa for routine maintenance works will resume flights next month.
“The CAA is working on some paper work and once they upgrade us to a level they want us to be, then we shall resume flights. What they are doing is a process which all airlines are supposed to go through and we thank Government for the encouragement during the difficult period,” Dr Belemu said.
“Actually, this process has also helped us to restructure, learn a few things and seek more financing. So come December 1, 2014, we shall resume operations,” he said.
Mahogany Air launched its maiden flights in March this year and its destinations from Lusaka
