Mr. Mukanga has told QFM News in an interview that the committee constituted to look into the matter will soon issue a memo to Cabinet for approval of the re-introduction of the national airline.
Mr. Mukanga says a lot has been done towards meeting the June deadline.
He has since expressed hope that Cabinet will react quickly and positively to the memo so that a national flag carrier can be re-introduced by next month.
Mr. Mukanga says government will not relax but will continue working towards the reintroduction of an effective airline that will contribute significantly to the country’s economic growth.
He notes that the absence of a national airline has negatively affected the development of tourism sector, non-traditional exports and other industries that directly or indirectly rely on tourism.
