Mahogany Air to Resume Flights

Economy Mahogany Air to Resume Flights

MAHOGANY Air Chief Executive Officer Jim Belemu has announced that the airline plans to resume its scheduled flights on the 15 of June 2020.

Dr. Jim Belemu says the airline will ensure that it follows all the Covid-19 preventive measure as it resumes operations.

He however says this will also be dependent on demand from the public between now and June 15.

Dr. Belemu has asked government for waivers on certain taxes such as Airport Taxes, Ground Insurance among others to keep the business afloat as they resume operations.

He notes that flights are expected to run on a loss due to a number of measures implemented in the fight against Covid-19 such as social distancing.

He said the airline is expected to lose about K40 million by the end of 2020


  1. These are companies that the government should have listed for assistance…..infact, instead of wasting millions of dollars on setting up a totally new airline, the government should have bought shares in this one, boost its capacity and let it operate professionally and expand in the region.

  2. This is what Chitotela and his Transport minster colleague should be doing reducing Airport Taxes, Ground Insurance or even reducing tax on A1 jet fuel instead of lifting bans of relocating wild animals under the guise of promoting tourism.
