Ethiopian is the biggest airline in Africa by a vast margin. Regional air travel is still in its infancy if it even exists at all in some places. Zambian Airways is a potential growth airline, with the rarity of a stable regional network and good domestic flights.
Ethiopian has bought 45% and will effectively advise the airline and manage it day to day as it prepares to expand regionally then internationally. 55% remains with the Zambian Government.
Zambia is renowned for its agriculture, copper, and wildlife tourism.
