Thought air travel was expensive? Well, think again! Proflight Zambia airline has slashed its fares to just K1,550 on return specials for its Lusaka to Ndola, Solwezi and Livingstone routes to create great value, convenience and affordability on its domestic flights.

The reduced fares are targeting a range of travellers, from tourists needing a break, those looking to catch up with family and friends, or passengers planning to boost business.

Proflight Zambia’s director of government and industry affairs Captain Philip Lemba said: “Proflight believes in giving outstanding value for money to its customers and the K1,550 deal is the best air fare price you can get for a return journey on a domestic route in Zambia.

“Our airline has massively reduced its fares on Lusaka to Ndola, Solwezi and Livingstone to boost economic activity in the cities and strengthen family ties.”

The airline’s success lies in responding to the needs of its passengers while remaining true to its core principles of being safe, reliable, efficient and friendly with a strong commitment to fostering economic development.

“This is a huge opportunity for travellers to use and this special deal is not time bound, which means flyers can book in advance for the coming months,” Capt Lemba added.

As the market leader in Zambian aviation, Proflight has made it a top priority to support and promote tourism and business travel in the country by connecting customers at affordable fares.

Cheaper flights to Ndola, Livingstone and Solwezi will allow business travellers to fly more often and keep in touch with their families and investments.

Proflight’s competitive prices mean customers have an alternative to lengthy, time-consuming, and sometime risky road travel, and getting them to their destination far quicker, meaning much more time to enjoy at their destination.

A flight between Lusaka and Ndola takes just about 45 minutes, while a journey with Proflight between Lusaka and Solwezi is only 1 hour 10 minutes long.

And Livingstone, Zambia’s top tourism destination, is also about 1 hour 10 minutes on the Lusaka-Livingstone route.

The latest offer is the first for 2018 of various promotions, specials and discounts on airfares for certain routes throughout the coming 12 months.

“We want travelers to have the freedom to choose and afford to fly to any of our destinations across the country and the southern region,” said Capt Lemba.
