NAC2000 Corporation Ltd started life as National Air Charters, a cargo subsidiary of Zambia Airways Corporation Limited (QZ), the national airline of Zambia. The company operated the airline's cargo flights using Zambia Airways freighter aircrafts, the B707 and B757. When these aircraft were retired, National Air Charters began leasing cargo aircraft from other airlines.
In addition, the company was involved in warehousing, importing and exporting. In 1994, whilst Zambia Airways was placed in voluntary liquidation, its subsidiary National Air Charters continued, focussing on its ground handling service.
In 1999 the company was sold into private hands, and changed its name to NAC2000 Corporation Limited.

Take the headache out of travelling by using NAC2000′s passenger handling services. Popular with groups such as sports teams, school groups, church members or wedding parties, NAC2000 can also arrange chartered flights. The meet and assist service can be tailored to meet individual needs.
Trained staff will accompany passengers during their time at the airport – on arrival, before departure, or while waiting for a connecting flight. The company can also help with checking in or picking up luggage, and finding your way around the airport.
Uniformed NAC2000 staff members meet the passengers at the door of the aircraft, or the entrance to the terminal, with a welcome sign which may include the passenger's name, company name, logo or some other previously arranged symbol.
The guest is then assisted through the various checkpoints (security, passport control, and customs) to a waiting lounge or the arrivals area. NAC2000 is also happy to help with transfers and booking of accommodation. Guests will be escorted to the place where they are staying.
