The Zambian carrier had launched low-cost regional services from Lusaka in July 2008 using an Embraer E-120 Brasilia, introducing jet service with two Boeing 737-500s in June 2009. Zambezi was grounded indefinitely by the Zambian Ministry of Transport on 29 October 2011, and officially suspended operations on 1 November 2011. Reports earlier today suggest that the government may consider allowing the airline to resume flying, provided that it implements certain administrative and maintenance reforms and is successfully re-evaluated in the next eight weeks.
