British Airways recently suspended its flights into Lusaka due to low revenues the route has been contributing to the airline's business. The airline, which has flights directly into Lusaka on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, will cease operations next month and affected workers will receive a severance package.
"We have suspended our three flights into Lusaka from London with effect from October 27, 2013. The route has not been making a profitable contribution in recent past and affected staff shall be given a severance package," George Mawadri, the airline's commercial manager for east and central Africa, was quoted as saying by the Post.
