Proflight Zambia has launched a new domestic service route to Mongu in Western province.

The service which has been launched will provide travellers to Mongu with a twice-a- week service catering for both business and leisure programmes.

In a press statement issued in Lusaka, Proflight Director of Government and Industry Affairs, Captain Phillip Lemba said as part of its route schedule expansion, Zambia’s only scheduled Airliner will service the route every Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The addition of the Mongu route which has become the tenth domestic destination for Proflight has now privileged passengers to be able to fly to all of Zambia’s provincial capitals.

It is hoped that its introduction will spur tourism in the province which boasts of the famous Kuomboka traditional ceremony and the renowned annual Wildebeast migration on the Liuwa plains.

Dignitaries that flew on the inaugural flight included Mongu Central Member of Parliament and North-Western province Minister Nathaniel Mubukwanu, Yichidi Ndhlovu from the Department of Civil Aviation, Western province Permanent Secretary Amos Malupenga and Zambia Tourism Board Publicity Co-ordinator Caristo Chitamfya.

The service will be operated using a 12 seater Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft with return fares pegged at K3, 502 including taxes.

The Airline which is celebrating 22 years of providing safe, reliable, efficient and friendly aviation service is now considering servicing the Harare, Tete and Johannesburg routes upon obtaining regulatory approval.

    • anyoko careful so you’re saying god too is ugly since we are created in his own image.careful with what you say what about your nose,check yourself.

    • What is ugly about the girls in the picture? Is it because they are dark? The picture is a poor one, probably taken by an amateur.

  1. Congrats Proflight. But why a 12 seater. Anyway, it is just the beginning. Good times ahead. Mushota leave the young ladies alone.

  2. THE FIRST EURO-PLANE LANDED IN MONGU-LEALUI IN 1934. THERE WAS AIR SERVICE FROM THEN ONWARD NONE-STOP UNTIL AFTER INDEPENDENCE. THERE WAS EVEN AIR SERVICES TO AND FROM KALABO, SESHEKE, SENANGA, MANKOYA (KAOMA).

  3. Over Priced that’s about $650 it’s a return flight to Dubai. Do we have a Consumer Protection Commission or a price regulatory board in Zambia to look at such issues? Even if it’s a free market economy, this is day light theft. This is why these African Airlines will never grow. They lack proper Business Strategy. Make it affordable for masses to afford and then Demand will increase which will equal more passengers and a better bottom line. Tulo ba Pro-flight
