AIRTEL - Airtel Malawi Plc
Airtel Malawi Plc, formerly known as Zain Malawi and before that Celtel Malawi Limited, is a Malawian telecom company incorporated on September 3, 1998 under company registration number 5114 as a private limited company and trades under the brand name Airtel. Airtel became the country’s second mobile service provider with the launch of a GSM network in October 1999. The telecom company began rolling out a GPRS upgrade across its infrastructure in 2006 and a commercial launch of the service took place in October 2007.
In September 2007 Airtel Malawi’s then-parent company, MTC Group of Kuwait, adopted the new name Zain to unify its various brands across Africa and the Middle East. All operations in Sub-Saharan Africa, which were held via MTC Group’s wholly-owned subsidiary Celtel International, were rebranded from Celtel to Zain in August 2008. Following Indian telecom operator Bharti Airtel’s acquisition of the Sub-Saharan Africa assets of Zain Group in June 2010, the company underwent another name change – from Zain to Airtel in November 2010.
Airtel Malawi’s operating licence was renewed by Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority for a further ten years in early 2014.
