Welcome on Board Proflight

Dear Passengers,

A warm welcome on board. I’m delighted to share some news with you concerning our airline.  

We recommenced flights to Kasama to bolster convenience and boost tourism, marking a significant step towards enhancing connectivity in the Northern part of Zambia. Our 29-seat twin-turboprop Jetstream 41 aircraft touched down at Kasama Airport on March 19, 2024, heralding the momentous re-launch of this pivotal route. Notably, the last scheduled flight into Kasama was in December 2018, following which the runway and airport infrastructure underwent refurbishment. 

We continue Proflight’s unwavering commitment to providing world-class air services while fostering connections between local cities. The reintroduction of this service holds immense promise for travellers, significantly reducing travel time to Northern Province or vice versa. Whereas journeys by road could stretch over 13 hours, our direct schedules offer a swift 1-hour 30-minute flight, with an additional 2-hour 30-minute option via Mansa. Our flight schedule caters to business and leisure travellers, with direct routes from Lusaka to Kasama on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and via Mansa on Thursdays. Return flights from Kasama to Lusaka are available on Thursdays, along with connecting flights to and from Ndola, providing flexibility for travellers. 

Beyond facilitating travel, this service unlocks access to Northern Province’s breathtaking attractions, including waterfalls, hot springs, and Lake Tanganyika. As Proflight Zambia, we aim to develop this route further, contributing to Zambia’s tourism and economic growth while delivering top-notch transport services. In a bid to promote this region, we will serve Kasama coffee onboard our flights further showcasing the area’s unique offerings to you, our passengers.

On a different note, Chunga is hidden deep within the breathtaking Kafue National Park, Zambia’s oldest and largest national park. Due to the abundance of safari hotels and camps and the concentration of animals, it’s a popular destination for safari travellers. For your convenience, we will use Procharter to run three weekly flights between Chunga and Lusaka beginning on June 1 and ending on October 31, 2024.

Furthermore, we have increased the frequency of flights on our Mfuwe and Livingstone routes, which commenced in April, with the aim of adding flexibility and convenience to our current schedule on the two routes.

Finally, as a reminder, our exciting Lower Zambezi Safari schedules commence in June.

I trust you found this news both exciting and enlightening. We thank you for choosing Proflight Zambia as your carrier of choice. We value your support. 

Captain Josias Walubita,

Director Flight Operations
