Zambezi Airlines' AOC restored

Zambezi Airlines' Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) has reportedly been restored, however, its aircraft are not permitted to make scheduled services until it meets other financial and safety requirements (The Times of Zambia, 11-Jan-2012). Transport and Communications Minister Yamfwa Mukanga stated the lifting of the suspension was procedural but a tribunal will have to determine whether the requirements were met during the suspension before the carrier can operate again. Zambezi Airlines was suspended from operations in early Nov-2011 (UK Zambians, 01-Nov-2011). According to OAG, the carrier was operating three Boeing 737-500 aircraft.
