Zambia is Flying!

I said recently that Zambia is on the move on the roads. Well, we are also flying more and more. It is particularly good to see domestic air travel growing and air freight. And of course the surge of Proflight domestically is part of this story. The 24% growth in international aircraft movements within the context of falling tourism numbers over the same period is interesting! It shows that Zambia is becoming more connected and that the challenges being experienced in tourism is more to do with a poor tourism policy not the absence of a national airline

Question : What policies should government pursue to sustain the growth in aviation industry in Zambia? Share your thoughts and ideas below.
