Welcome On Board Proflight
Hello and welcome aboard. Proflight is delighted to announce that we received a third fifty-seat capacity CRJ200 Jet aircraft in December 2022!
Bombardier manufactures the CRJ aircraft series (now owned by the Mitsubishi Group) in Canada. Proflight’s systematic expansion strategy includes the arrival of the third CRJ. The new aircraft will supplement our existing fleet, allowing us to provide more capacity on the domestic network while also expanding our international route network. Proflight, as usual, is demonstrating responsible leadership and expressing strong support for the CRJ aircraft type. This aircraft is ideal for us because it can be used profitably and efficiently on both domestic and regional routes. With travel demand expected to increase significantly in the coming year, Proflight Zambia is investing in its jet fleet to provide our customers with greater comfort and speed. This is Proflight’s second 50-seat Bombardier CRJ200 leased from Avmax Leasing, a prominent Canadian leasing company that specialises in leasing Canadian-made aircraft.
The addition of another jet aircraft to Proflight’s fleet is a significant achievement. The aircraft took a complicated and impressive ferry route. The route began in Calgary, Canada, and ended in Lusaka, Zambia, via Great Falls, Montana, Goose Bay, Canada, Keflavik, Iceland, Southampton, UK, Algiers, Algeria and N’Djamena, Chad.
Proflight has been running an elaborate internal project to bring this additional aircraft to its new home. As project manager, I am overly excited to see our team’s arduous work and meticulous planning finally coming to fruition! As the adage goes, “The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.” We are confident that this brave decision by Proflight to bring in a third jet aircraft will be well received by our esteemed customers who will enjoy flying on this efficient, quiet and comfortable aircraft.
During the year 2023, Proflight will be training additional Zambian pilots for the CRJ aircraft fleet through our training partners Lufthansa Aviation Training in Berlin, Germany
Whether you are flying for business or leisure, Proflight will get you to your destination safely and on time. Many thanks to you for choosing Proflight Zambia as your carrier of choice. We value your patronage and I hope you have a delightful flight experience with us. We wish you and your families a safe, happy and healthy 2023.
I thank you.
