Proflight Zambia is adding more international destinations


Proflight Zambia has unveiled plans to add three further international destinations to its schedule by mid-2014.

Following the successful launch of its first international service, from Lusaka to Lilongwe in June, Proflight Zambia is now planning to fly from Ndola to Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo, with connections between Ndola and Lusaka.

The airline is also considering services to Harare, Dar es Salaam, Tete and Johannesburg, subject to regulatory approval.

With the introduction of the Malawi route, Proflight Zambia currently operates 10 scheduled routes using nine aircraft, including a 105-seat Boeing 737, which was recently added to the Proflight fleet as the airline’s first jet aircraft.

Proflight is keen to introduce flights to Johannesburg from Lusaka and is examining the option of flying into South Africa’s smaller Lanseria airport, for which costs are lower than that of the city’s main O.R. Tambo International airport.

Lanseria is on the Sandton/Pretoria side of Johannesburg, closer to Lusaka in terms of flying time, as well as central Johannesburg, Pretoria and Sandton. Lanseria is also served by Kulula and Mango Airlines, which fly to Cape Town and Durban from Lanseria.

The airline has appealed for input from travellers to help it identify how best the new services can be structured. Suggestions, recommendations or opinions that would help the airline with its market research and decisions on this route can be sent to
