The airline prides itself in providing a safe, reliable, efficient and friendly service, and offering good value to business and leisure travellers locally and internationally. The airline operates a 50-seater Bombardier CRJ-100 jet, four 29-seater Jetstream 41 aircraft; two 18-seater Jetstream 32; and two 12-seater Cessna Caravan C208 aircraft.
We operate over 200 flights a week with an on-time performance of over 80% . In the three-and a half years from to June 2015 the airline flew 440,205 passengers with an average load factor of 65%.
The airline is linked to the global distribution systems which enables travel agents around the world to book tickets in real time. Zambian customers can make payment through Shoprite supermarkets and using Airtel and MTN mobile money.
A code-share agreement is in place with RwandAir and interline agreements with South African Airlines, Emirates, Ethiopian and Kenya Airways.
Proflight Zambia is the fastest growing local airline in Southern Africa, with capacity almost doubling between 2010 and 2014. It was ranked third, after Ethiopian Airlines and Turkish Airlines.
Proflight Engineering is a licenced Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO) and we are therefore able to conduct most of our maintenance in house although some of the maintenance involves sending aircraft to SA or having parts / engines overhauled in the US and Europe.
Our Engineering department is made up of over 60 licenced engineers and most of the licence renewals and ground school are carried out in Zambia in line with the manufacturer’s requirements.
Safety is the airline's number one value and all departments aspire to practice the company's values. The Proflight Director of Quality and Safety oversees the company's 'Safety Action Groups' which exist in all departments to ensure safety standards are met and maintained.
The airline commenced IATA workshops for 'IOSA', the IATA Operations Safety Audit in March 2015 with the view of completing the audit by mid-2016. Completion of the IOSA audit will enable Proflight to apply for an exemption to the EU restriction on airlines licenced in Zambia and to apply for membership of IATA. Proflight regularly undergoes third party safety audits and is the holder of an Airline Operators Certificate.
