Airline taps into demand from mining heartland

Domestic airline Proflight Zambia has increased its flights between Lusaka and Solwezi, enabling time-pressed business executives to travel to and from their meetings within one day.

The new timetable, effective from Wednesday, July 4, will see two direct flights a day from Monday to Friday.

“Proflight has listened to its passengers, and due to popular demand and requests, we have responded with a new scheduled service that will help travellers manage their time more efficiently,” said Proflight Commercial Director Ms Keira Irwin.

The new direct flights offer a faster and more convenient service to the travelling public, and are designed to provide smooth connections onto and off of international flights out of Lusaka while still maintaining connections from and to international flights at Ndola.

The schedule also offers a day return from Lusaka to Solwezi for the business traveller.

“This new schedule will save the businessmen time, give the connecting passenger more options and provide a higher value service,” added Ms Irwin.

Proflight’s new flights depart from Lusaka at 06:50hrs and 13:50hrs, arriving in Solwezi at 08:00 and 15:00hrs respectively. Flights from Solwezi to Lusaka depart from Solwezi at 10:40 hrs and 17:45hrs, arriving in Lusaka at 11:50hrs and 18:30 hrs respectively.
There is also an Ndola-Solwezi flight departing at 09:35 hrs and arriving at 10:20 hrs, and a Solwezi-Ndola flight leaving at 08:20hrs and arriving at 09:05hrs.

The flights will be operated by Proflight’s Jetstream 32 aircraft, which has 18 seats.
