Tanzanian airline, fast jet airlines, plans to establish its airline base in Zambia after it concludes its discussions with the Zambian government.
Meanwhile fast jet airlines will start a twice-a-week flight into Lusaka from dare-es-salaam in Tanzania from the 1st of February 2014.
The airline which was established on the 29th of November 2012 in Tanzania and flies 3-times a week to Johannesburg from dare-es-salaam is also planning to start flying to Kenya, Malawi and Zimbabwe apart from Zambia.
And fast jet chief commercial officer Richard bodin has observed that Zambia is a strong commercially driven economy and the airline plans to grow its flight services as it continues to operate in the country.
Mr. bodin says the move to establish an airline base in Zambia was prompted at the fact that there is a heavy traffic and trade between Zambia and Tanzania and this is seen as a good business opportunity.
He says close to 100people in Zambia will be employed when the base is established.
