Mahogany Air (HOG, Lusaka) has resumed commercial operations following a three-year long hiatus. The carrier said in a statement on Monday, June 26, its maiden service operated between Lusaka and Ndola. Additional services are expected to Solwezi, Mfuwe, and Livingstone.

Operations are onboard E120 capacity wet-leased from South African ACMI/charter specialist Sahara African Aviation (Nelspruit).

Earlier this year, airline Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jim Belemu said a consortium of Zambian and Dubai-based investors had pledged to recapitalize Mahogany Air to the tune of USD23 million spread over the next three years.
