Proflight Zambia codeshares with fastjet

1084

Lusaka-based regional airline Proflight Zambia has joined forces with low-cost airline fastjet, making it possible for passengers to travel between the 15 destinations serviced by the two carriers across Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania.

With this alliance, both airlines will expand their reaches between Zambia and Tanzania, while establishing Lusaka as a regional aviation hub. Fastjet will service the route between Dar es Salaam and Lusaka from 1 May, as well as Tanzanian domestic routes from Dar es Salaam, while Proflight will service its existing domestic routes in Zambia, and its route to Lilongwe in Malawi, from Lusaka.

Passengers can now book any of fastjet’s flights in conjunction with a Proflight ticket online at www.flyzambia.com, or at any of its sales offices countrywide. Fares combining Proflight and fastjet flights will include a free checked-in baggage allowance of 23 kilograms.

Passengers are able to book flights on a single ticket from any of Proflight’s destinations – Livingstone, Ndola, Mfuwe, Chipata, Solwezi, Lower Zambezi, Mongu, Kasama and Mansa, and Lilongwe in Malawi, all via Lusaka – to Dar es Salaam, or via that city to Kilimanjaro, Mbeya and Mwanza in Tanzania, on fastjet.

Flights between Lusaka and Dar es Salaam, which take off on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, can still be booked on the Proflight system, or on Proflight’s flyzambia website.

Passengers affected by the changes on that route during the changeover period will be given the option to re-book on one of Proflight’s affiliated carriers: fastjet, Kenya Airways flying daily via Nairobi, or Ethiopian Airlines flying daily via Addis Ababa. Alternatively, a full refund will be given.

The agreement signed with fastjet follows similar deals signed by Proflight with Emirates and Kenya Airways, which further expand Proflight’s reach on the African continent.
