Air Botswana is set to resume flights into Zambia after indefinitely stopping operations on the route two years ago.
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 2019.
Air Botswana said increased commercial activities and movements of people between the two countries has resulted in the airline resuming its flights into Zambia.
Air Botswana said it will operate a jet service with a 70-seater capacity with flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
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 trade and investment as highlighted with several other developments such as the ongoing construction of the Kazungula Bridge Project between the two SADC countries.
This is according to a statement issued to ZNBC News by First Secretary for Press and Administration at the Zambia Embassy in Gaborone, Botswana Kasabo Kalusa.
