Increasing demand for flights to Mansa has prompted Proflight Zambia to double the frequency of its direct service from Ndola to the Luapula capital.
The airline has added flights on Wednesdays and Fridays from June 13, supplementing its existing flights on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Flights leave Ndola at 10:15hrs, arriving in Mansa at 11:00hrs, with the return flight leaving Mansa at 11:20hrs and arriving in Ndola at 12:05hrs.
The service is timed for smooth connections from Lusaka to Ndola, with flights leaving Lusaka at 09:00hrs and arriving in Ndola at 11:00hrs, then departing Ndola at 12:40hrs to arrive in Lusaka at 13:25hrs.
Addressing travel agents in Lusaka and the Copperbelt this week, Proflight Sales and Marketing Manager, Barbara Namwila said: “Due to popular demand, we are increasing frequency to the Ndola/ Mansa direct flights with connection to and from Lusaka. The additional flights reflect growth in domestic tourism to Luapula, and renewed interest in business travel as concerns over COVID-19 recede.”
Ms Namwila thanked travel agents and added that due to Proflight’s strong roots in the Copperbelt with its first Lusaka/ Ndola service commencing in 2005 with the Jetstream 32 aircraft, Proflight would continue to build new routes, offer direct flights and provide a high level of service to their customers.
