The Airlines and Allied Workers Union of Zambia (AAWUZ) has called on President Edgar Lungu not to abandon the idea of establishing a national airline that the late President Sata had.

Union General Secretary, Neddy Banda, said the establishment of a national airline will boost local tourism in the country.

Mr Banda said the airline will not only create employment for the local people but also be a flag-carrier for the country.

He was speaking in a telephone interview with ZANIS in Solwezi yesterday.

Mr Banda said the union is available for consultation and will support President Lungu’s administration in order for to excel and move the country forward.

Zambia has had no national airliner since the demise of Zambia Airways in the early 1990s following a massive privatisation programme
