Toilet Facilities

Not all Proflight aircraft are equipped with a toilet on board so please use the restroom facilities at the airport prior to travel or ask the staff at check in if there is a toilet on board the aircraft operating your flight.


While punctuality is important, it is your safety that is our primary concern. We require that you comply with the crew's instructions at all times.

Safety features vary by aircraft type and we ask you to pay special attention to the Safety briefing and to read the Passenger Briefing Card in the seat pocket or in the pocket adjacent to your seat.

Cabin Baggage

Our commuter-type turbo-prop and CRJ regional jet aircraft do not have the large overhead stowage compartments that are common on larger jet aircraft used on long-haul flights. For this reason we ask you to comply with our limit of one cabin bag weighing a maximum of 5 kgs.

For safety reasons your cabin baggage must fit into the approved stowage areas under the seat in front of you (except at bulk-head and exit rows) or in the overhead compartment. If we cannot safely fit your hand cabin baggage in the cabin it will be tagged and placed in the hold and delivered to you at the aircraft door or baggage belt on arrival.

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.

Nkwazi is the Proflight Zambia in-flight magazine first published in January 2013 and is your free copy when travelling on board.
