Proflight launches flights to Lubumbashi


Proflight Zambia is launching its new route to the Democratic Republic of Congo on 16 October, enabling business people and traders to travel between the mining centres of Ndola (Zambia) and Lubumbashi (DRC).

Flights will commence from Ndola’s Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport to Lubumbashi International Airport on 16 October. Travellers will be able to fly three times a week – on Tuesday mornings and Thursday and Friday afternoons. Proflight, through its route network, will also make it more affordable to connect to Lusaka by providing reduced through-fares in all classes on that route.

The route will be operated with a Jetstream 32 aircraft. Fares start from around $430 return, including taxes.

Lubumbashi is the second largest city in the DRC and the centre of a thriving business area.

Proflight flies from its base in Lusaka to Livingstone, Ndola, Kasama, Chipata, Mansa, Mfuwe, Solwezi and Lower Zambezi, as well as to Lilongwe (Malawi). It is expected to add a flight to Zambia’s Kafue National Park next year.
