Mahogany Air, Zambia’s newest airline servicing local routes has assured the Zambian public of its continued existence.

Chief Executive Officer Dr Jim Belemu says his company has learnt from the collapse of other local airlines in the past and will not follow the same path.

Dr Belemu says his company is aware of where the pitfalls are by being in touch with people who have been in the airline business before.

He adds that Mahogany Air is driven by the momentum government has put in place following the opening up of most areas in the country citing Solwezi.

Dr Belemu has since assured the Airline’s customers of hospitality and comfort on its aircraft.

Mahogany Air launched its maiden flight on Saturday 1st March, 2014. The airline will be flying to Ndola, Chipata, Livingstone and Solwezi among other destinations.


Chairman’s welcome Message

On behalf of Mahogany Air and indeed on my own behalf, I wish to welcome you our new airline.

We are a newly established airline that will operate both scheduled and charter flights within Zambia and the region.
Our decision to enter the Zambian aviation industry was as a result of an extensive research that revealed that there was still room for other airlines to operate in the country.

We also felt that the prevailing economic environment is conducive for local investors to play an active role the growth of the aviation industry.

As Mahogany Air, we are committed to working with all stakeholders in the industry including government. To our fellow competitors, Mahogany Air is here to compliment your efforts of availing this noble service to the general public. We would also like to acknowledge government’s unwavering support in making sure that this project becomes a reality and sustainable.

This is important especially at a time when government is working hard to create employment for our citizens. To this effect, we intend to engage a number of qualified Zambians to work with us in making Mahogany Air, the airline of choice. I must mention here that our aircrafts are all pressurised and twin engine in design to give our passengers comfort and tranquility.

We intend to fly to all provincial headquarters and within the region as well as provide charters within the sub-region.

It is now my pleasure to welcome you all to Mahogany Air.

Thank You.

Jim Belemu
