Zambezi Airlines (Lusaka) resumed regional operations on June 17 by wet-leasing two Bombardier CRJ200 regional jets from SA Express (South African Express) (Johannesburg). The route structure is rather limited (see below) for now as the flag carrier hopes to make a full recovery before expanding. Previously the airline ceased operations on October 31, 2011.
