British Airways (BA) has reduced its fares across the board on its Lusaka –London flight as part of restructuring of its ticket pricing system.

British Airways Commercial Manager for Zambia, Beatrice Kamanga announced the reduction in a statement to ZANIS in Lusaka today.

She said the airline has introduced a new shoulder season of mid range fares for flights from June 10 to 22, December 6 to 31 and between August15, and October 31.

Ms. Kamanga said the reductions will mean the airline which is the only airline to fly customers direct from Zambia to Europe give travelers’ real value for money.

She said the new fare structures which will also incorporate further reductions in low season fares comes into effect on Monday May 9, 2011.

She said the airline has been working hard to provide affordable fares while maintaining high quality service and comfort.

“The airline, which is the only airline to fly customers direct from Zambia to Europe, has introduced a new “shoulder season” of mid-range fares for flights between August 15 and October 31, June 10-22 and from December 6 to 31,” she said.

Ms. Kamanga said customers can fly into London Heathrow’s new Terminal 5 for around two-thirds of the peak season fare if they fly at the new designated “shoulder season” times.

She added that the low season rates apply from January 19 to June 9, and November 1 to December 5 while the high season is from June 23 to August 14 and from January 1 to 15.

She added that tourists and professionals will benefit from the new ticket rates, as it will enable them choose a time to fly according to their schedules while still taking advantage of attractive prices.

British Airways has been operating in Zambia for more than 70 years and currently flies in the country three times a week.



  1. That sounds good. Atleast I can now afford to fly my whole clan into UK to see pictures of Willliam and Kate at affordable fares. Oh wait a minute maybe thats when these guys have reduced to the level where everyone is because I hear BA ni mwala! I end here!

  2. Was this part of the two hour Sata discussion in London? He is already making things happen. Wow.

  3. thankyou mr president in waiting. we see your foreign policy is workable. lol. meanwhile we need another reduction on USA to London so that we can move this summer.

  4. Excellent news!!!! It was becoming a little too expensive to visit home every year. For the price of a ticket B.A are asking for I can go on holiday to Spain on an all inclusive for two weeks. Great news.

  5. awe mwabomba ba Sata. 90what more more when he takes charge of the affairs of the country? The 90 day period turn round must surely be a big possibility!

  6. What has Sata got to do with the air fairs. Well, if it is his works then he should first start with local bus fares which are very high. May be that way we shall see that he is committed to serve the Zambians and not the British. By the way, his meeting with the Zambians in London was poorly attended.

  7. # I thought people commending Sata are just doing it for a laugh. With regards to bus fairs in Zambia, you have just exposed your ignorance. The local ticket prices are very low on a fuel to fair ratio. If this problem has to be addressed RB should reduce the price of fuel and subsequently people would enjoy low fairs. That is not Sata’s job until he is elected.

  8. Jojo, I am not a dramatist. Sata went to England, BA reduces fares during William and Kate Wedding (Wedding Gift). RB is going to Turkey, you will get brand new Korans. Osama funeral memorials. Kabili RB mu Moslem.

  9. Chainama in USA. Where? These are the guys who call every washing powder “surf” and every toothpaste “colgate”. 

  10. just us KQ (Kenya Airways) it’s still cheaper than BA, you also get 56 kilos in total baggage allowance and most importantly KQ service is miles better than BA.

  11. OK Tiuzeni nizingati round trip? Dont just say u have reduced the fares we need numbers …sha

  12. What exactly is a cheap airfare to Zambia? I see no figures. Zambian holidays are expensive   from air tickets, transport, scavenger friends and relatives
