PRESIDENT Sata’s vision was to have a national airline established by October 24 this year to coincide with the Golden Jubilee celebrations, Minister of Transport, Works, Supply and Communications Yamfwa Mukanga has said.
In an interview in Lusaka yesterday, Mr Mukanga said, however, that Government encountered challenges in establishing the airline by that date.
“The committee that is in place is doing everything possible to ensure that the national airline is established soon,” Mr Mukanga said.
He said Government is also putting up measures to ensure that mistakes that caused the liquidation of Zambia Airways are avoided.
