The liquidator for Air Malawi says three aeroplanes for the airline are now up to be sold to any interested party.
The three planes are ATR 42 known as Shire, the Boeing 737-300 which was christened Kwacha and the Boeing 737-500 also popularly known as Sapitwa.
In an expression of interest notice published in press, the liquidator said the selling of the planes is part of his mandate to wind up Air Malawi’s operations and pay off all the parastatal’s debts.
The debts run in tens of millions of Kwacha.
This development is coming at a time when travellers in the country are still finding it challenges to use air transport on both domestic and international routes.
Government says it is still discussing with Ethiopian Airways on the modalities of operations in the yet to take off Air Malawi (2012).
The Ethiopians are strategic partners in the venture.
However, the country continues to export jobs and countless numbers of foreign exchange for solely relying on foreign airlines for both domestic and international travel.
