Planning / Get Ready To Fly

Airport Check In

Domestic Flights in Zambia

Domestic check-in opens 90 minutes prior to scheduled departure and closes 30 minutes before departure. If you are connecting from one Proflight flight to another Proflight flight and both flights are booked as part of a through journey you are not subject to normal check-in time limits. You are required to advise the check-in staff of your onward connection at the first check-in point. To facilitate on-time departures you are asked to complete security screening and wait in the gate boarding area once you have checked in or used the Bag Drop.


International flights from Lusaka

International check-in opens two hours prior to scheduled departure and closes 40 minutes before departure. International Check-in at Lusaka is located through the Main Security screening area.


All other flights

If you are flying from another regional or international airport please check the TV monitors or Flight Information displays for the location of check-in desk and boarding gate for your flight. There is strict security at most major airports and you are therefore advised to allow sufficient time for check-in, security and boarding formalities. We recommend you plan to arrive at the airport at least two hours before departure time.

Seat Assignment

Seat assignment is currently offered on the Lusaka-Durban route operated by CRJ jet aircraft. You may select your seat during online booking, when you check-in online or at the departure airport.

All other flights are 'Open Seating' which allows you to choose your own seat on board the aircraft. Where possible our cabin crew will attempt to seat families together but please accept our apologies if this is not always possible.
