Mr. Walubita disclosed that the Airline has scheduled its flights to Mansa for Tuesdays and Thursdays.

He has since called on people in the Province to support the airline.


  1. I’m just guessing that the Proflight people are NOT very happy with Zambian Airways duplicating their routes

  2. They must be scared indeed cos HH will run Zambian airways like a business so I think they know the story and are all scared. But no need to be scared because as long as the UPND is in power, Zambia airways is going to excel, no doubt abt that.

  3. I will always support Proflight because they are local not foreign owned like Zambian Air which is owned by Ethiopian Air.
