Malawi's Department of Civil Aviation suspends Kenya Airways' freedom route right (Lusaka <> Lilongwe)

Following the introduction of daily flights between Lilongwe (Malawi) and Lusaka (Zambia) via Blantyre (Malawi) by the recently launched Malawian Airlines, Malawi's Department of Civil Aviation has suspended the freedom route rights which allowed Kenya Airways to carry passengers between the two destinations from 28 Feb 2014. Passengers holding tickets with Kenya Airways between Lilongwe and Lusaka are advised to contact the airline to get refunding.
Malawian Airlines is a public-private partnership between the Government of Malawi, Ethiopian Airlines and Malawian investors. The new airline, which was formed after the collapse of Malawi's national airline, Air Malawi, launched operations on 31 Jan 2014 with flights between Lilongwe and Blantyre.
