Proflight Resumes Lusaka-Durban Route
Zambia’s leading regional airline, Proflight Zambia, has relaunched its direct Lusaka-Durban route starting from April 2023, continuing its ambition to expand its regional network and business.
Durban becomes the second international destination in South Africa serviced by Proflight. The airline will operate flights on Thursdays beginning April 6 and Sundays beginning April 16, with a special Tuesday flight on April 11 for Easter weekend returns. On other days, flights are available to Durban via Johannesburg.
Flights depart Lusaka from Kenneth Kaunda International Airport at 09:00hrs, arriving in Durban at King Shaka International Airport at 11:30hrs. The return flight leaves Durban at 12:30hrs, arriving in Lusaka at 15:00hrs.
“We are delighted to announce that Lusaka-Durban direct flight is coming back this April,” said Proflight Zambia Director Flight Operations Captain Josias Walubita.
The Lusaka-Durban route was stopped during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The airline continues to follow health safety measures and adheres to public health guidelines on COVID-19 throughout the journey.
Capt. Walubita said the airline’s resumption of the Lusaka-Durban route was a clear indication of its commitment to growth and regional expansion. The airline believes this expansion will provide its customers access to two key commercial centers in South Africa: Johannesburg and now Durban.
The route will be serviced by Proflight’s CRJ-100 and CRJ-200 aircraft, providing passengers with comfortable travel options. Schedules and fares are available for booking on the airline’s website, www.flyzambia.com.
Durban enjoys significant demand for flights to South Africa and is South Africa’s second most crucial manufacturing hub after Johannesburg, with several major multi-national companies.
