Proflight Zambia has recently achieved silver status under the internationally recognised Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) audit system, confirming its status as a world-class airline.
The award comes after the airline passed a series of rigorous international aviation safety audits, conducted over the past four years by BARS.
Proflight is the only Zambian airline to have been awarded the silver Basic Risk Standard by the Flight Safety Foundation, which provides a global industry benchmark for airline safety.
Proflight Zambia has launched its new route to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) enabling business people and traders to travel easily between the mining centres of Ndola and Lubumbashi.
Flights have commenced from Ndola’s Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport to Lubumbashi International Airport.Travellers are able to fly three times a week - on Tuesday mornings and Thursday and Friday afternoons. Proflight, through its extensive network of routes, also make it easy and affordable to connect to Lusaka by providing reduced through-fares in all classes on that route.
Proflight Zambia has halved its airfares for young flyers, giving children even more opportunity to explore Zambia.
The airline has also broadened the age range for youngsters eligible for discounted fares, enabling anyone under the age of 18 to qualify for reduced fares.
The new policy is valid for bookings made from Zambia and Malawi.
The airline’s new fare system means children aged between two and 17-years-old will now pay half of the adult fare, a discount of 50 per cent, instead of the previous discount of 25 per cent. Infants under two-years-old pay just 10 percent of the full fare.
