Ethiopian Airlines signs deal to revive Zambia’s national carrier

Ethiopian Airlines signed an agreement with the Zambian government to relaunch the southern African country’s national carrier, which was shut down more than two decades ago. Ethiopia’s state-owned flag carrier, ranked by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as the largest airline in Africa by revenue and profit, is in talks with a number of airline companies across the continent to acquire stakes and manage operations.

Ethiopian Airlines said on Tuesday said it had struck a deal with shareholders of Zambia Airways and had acquired a 45 percent stake in the firm. It did not disclose how much it had paid for the stake.
