Malawian Airlines to continue operations amid low passenger rates

Malawian Airlines is yet to decide on whether it is necessary to continue or stop flight operations in light of the Covid crisis.

The Airline is consistently experiencing low numbers of passengers boarding its planes due to the increasing Covid restrictions across the globe.

“For sure, passenger numbers are very low and there are no indications that passenger numbers will grow in the short term,” Malawian Airlines Public Relations Officer Joseph Josiah told Capital FM.

Malawi and some of  its neighboring countries are experiencing a surge in Covid cases, a development which has enhanced cross border restrictions and affected business operations in the process

Josiah points out that serving the Malawian public remains their core duty regardless of the persistently low air travel rate on its planes.

He was however quick to point out that government will decide on the future of the airline, being a key shareholder.

Malawian Airlines only returned to the skies in September last year, after being grounded for 6 months due to government restrictions on cross boarder travel due to the pandemic.
