Malawi Airlines introduces Dar es Salaam link from Lilongwe

  • Malawi Airlines, which in the previous week added Lusaka to its Lilongwe offering, continued to expand its presence in Africa, with a new service from its Lilongwe (LLW) base in Malawi to Dar es Salaam (DAR) in Tanzania on 18 February. The 998-kilometre sector will be served thrice-weekly, utilising Ethiopian Airlines’ 69-seat Q400s. The carrier’s new route to the largest city in Tanzania will face no competition from other carriers. Commenting on the partnership with Malawi, Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian, said: “Ethiopian is first and foremost a pan-African carrier that strongly believes that intra-African partnership is critical for the emergence of a globally competitive indigenous African airline industry. It is with this spirit that we have entered into a long-term partnership in Malawi. Together, we aim to serve the public and the air travel needs in the southern Africa region, both for regional and inter-continental travel, through an integrated network that offers seamless and convenient connectivity options to our 79 global destinations.”
