Malawian Airlines Limited has said despite clocking a year, the company is still unimpressed with patronage of flights on most of its routes, the company’s publicist Maganizo Mazeze has said.
But Mazeze, a journalist turned media relations manager, was hopeful of improvement in business saying it was possible only once started experiencing their services.
“We will make big business once people start appreciating the airline’s efficiency,” said Mazeze.
Of the routes with the most appalling patronage, Mazeze cited the three routes between Malawi and Mozambique, Malawi to Tanzania and another between Malawi to Zimbabwe.
Malawi Airlines was established in 2012 after the liquidation of Air Malawi which, at the time, had become a liability to the country’s economy.
A broker was made with Ethiopian Airlines which owns 49 per cent of the shares. The government of Malawi owns 51 per cent.
Government will offload 31 per cent of its stake to private investors, and expects to earn over US$ 6 million from the sale.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
