The launch had been delayed due to technical delays in licensing and funding, said the Times of Zambia.

“We are just finalising documentation on joint ventures, funding and the licensing of the airline,” President of Fly Zambia, Joel Chilufya, told the paper.

He continued to say that the new national airline would now be launched at a later date this year with an initial investment of US$21m (R173m), and not in September as originally planned.

The airline is to be formed by a group of Zambian and South African professionals in the aviation industry in conjunction with the Zambian Government.
