PROFLIGHT is evaluating new routes to Johannesburg, Gabon, Entebbe and Dar-es-Salaam.
According to a statement issued through Langmead and Baker Communications, the additional routes would be made possible by the airline’s plans to invest and grow its aircraft fleet.
”Growing Zambian airline Proflight has unveiled plans to extend the network of regional routes it operates from its Lusaka hub. Flights to Johannesburg, Gabon, Entebbe (Uganda) and Dar-es-Salaam (Tanzania) are all being evaluated,” the statement reads in part.
The airline’s director of flight operations Captain Gerald Tembo said Proflight Zambia was already connecting the region from Lusaka to Durban, Harare and Lilongwe.
“Our strategy is to continue with that expansion to cement our position as the region’s number one regional carrier,” Capt Tembo said.
Proflight, which celebrates 27 years of operation this year, currently operates a 50-seater Bombardier CRJ-100 jet, three 29-seater Jetstream 41 aircraft, and two C208 Caravans and plans to add a further 50-seat Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft to the fleet.
