Zambia’s leading airline, Proflight, is aiming to take advantage of the government’s strides in developing the country’s aviation infrastructure through capacity building – the development and strengthening of human and institutional resources.

Fresh developments in aviation infrastructure in the country have sharpened the need for a more efficient and professional aviation workforce.

All Proflight departments have been undergoing intensive International Air Transport Association (IATA) accredited training which reinforces the airline’s ethos, reliability, safety, compliance, hospitality, competence, efficiency and professionalism.

After attending two weeks of IATA Training with 20 other Proflight members of staff involving two different courses on Airline Safety, the airline’s director of government and industry affairs, Captain Philip Lemba, said the training’s main focus was to ensure that the airline is ahead of the game.

“The goal of the training is to reaffirm that Proflight remains a diversification partner through the transportation of cargo and passengers to and from various destinations locally and abroad with ease and with strict IATA guidelines,” he explained.

“As an airline, all our departments and staff stationed at all airports are required to undergo regular training in phases.”

Capt Lemba further stated that the airline wants to maintain a high quality standard of aviation practice because good service has the potential to boost investment and tourism.

Proflight staff receive constant training and refresher courses in order to be kept updated with new developments in the industry and to enhance capacity building frequently.
