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. Airtel was re-registered as a public company on November 18, 2019, with company registration number TMRBS1011981. Airtel provides mobile telecommunication services (GSM Mobile cellular telephone services) including voice telephony, messaging, data communications (including internet), international and national long-distance telecommunications services and value-added services.
