Recent transport related developments:

Item 1# The terminal at Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport in Livingstone is cracking. The airport is also slowly sinking, according to National Airports Corporation. Transport Permanent Secretary Muyenga Atanga has assured the Parliamentary Committee that the terminal has "not deteriorated to life threatening levels"

Item 2# Negotiations have reached an advanced stage to relocate Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport from Ndola's Ndeke area to Chichele plantation. Kamfinsa MP Moses Chishimba has opposed the proposed tempering with Chichele Forest Reserve.

Item 3# Government will introduce a National Airline before the end of this year. Transport Minster Christopher Yaluma has appointed a cross government team of officials to spearhead the setting up of the national flag carrier. The team will submit a report to government on the issue next month.
