Zambia’s leading airline, Proflight Zambia is set to introduce flights between Lusaka and Harare beginning the first week of July.

Civil Aviation of Zimbabwe Public Relations and Communications Manager Mrs Anna Hungwe said Proflight will be flying ino Harare four times a week.

The airline will be flying on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday using a 29-seater Jetstream 4100 (J41),” she said.

Mrs. Hungwe said the arrival of Proflight underlines that the Harere route is a viable and lucrative route and a culmination of the Authority’s marketing efforts.

“There is improved perception of the Zimbabwean destination and our collaborative marketing efforts continue to bear fruit,” she said.

Proflight will have to contend with competition from Kenya, Ethiopia, Angola, Emirates and Namibia.

Proflight was established in 1991 and operates over 200 flights a week with an on time performance of over 80 percent.

It services domestic routes in Zambia and regional routes in Lilongwe in Malawi and Durban in South Africa.

It operates a 50-seater Bombardier CRJ-100 jet, four 29-seater Jetstream 41 aircraft and two 12-seater Cessna Caravan C208 aircraft.

    • Come to Zambia and operate your own 100 seater airline. With demand for the route, proflight will upgrade. You can operate a 100 seater on a route that can only service a handful a day.

  1. Proflight should do away with those second UK Jetstream and replace them with the Bombardier, Antonov or Embraer light passenger jets. Comfy your planes with plush leather seats, WIFI & TV screen. Offer complimentary snacks like Linden’s chocolate chip cookies, Terra blues potato chips, and Dunkin Donuts coffee. Provide snooze kit with eyeshades, ear plugs, and pre-landing treats like hot towels, coffee, orange juice, Junta & Jameson to help those with hangovers.

  2. Congratulations!!! Pro Flight is going to render travelers a great service. A choice of flights makes business sense. It is is convenient. There is no stress. When the business climate becomes unfavorable, then Pro Flight must constantly adjust its programming. This is good news for tourism promotion for earning foreign exchange and for creating jobs.

  4. its a good and well thought of plan by Proflight. its better at this early stage to use the J41 as opposed to larger aircraft where the wont make the numbers. we have to remember to remember the route has bigger carriers and therefore Proflight has to plane considering the route is not as busy as say JHB.
    I dont get that person talking about Antonov like really? this may also be targeted at Business executives who like quick and seamlessly travel quick turnarounds etc so well done Proflight for expanding.
