Travellers can now buy Proflight Zambia air tickets at 23 Shoprite stores across Zambia under a new sales agreement between the two companies.
The deal allows shoppers to book and pay for flights along with their groceries at supermarkets. This is particularly convenient in places such as Solwezi, Chipata, Kabwe and Kasama where there are no Proflight offices and no IATA travel agents from whom to purchase tickets. But there is a Shoprite store.
“Flying has become accessible to people from all walks of life across the country,” said Proflight Director of Government and Industry Affairs Captain Philip Lemba. “Paying for a plane ticket is now as simple as popping to Shoprite to do your weekly shopping.”
