While all efforts are put in place to ensure the safe arrival of your checked in luggage there may be occasion when something does go wrong. We aim to assist and help resolve any inconsistencies as quickly as possible.
If your luggage has been damaged, you must notify a Proflight Zambia representative before leaving the airport as this substantiates that the damage occurred while in our care. You will be asked to complete a Property Irregularity Report, which will be supplied by the Proflight Zambia staff or handling agent. Based on the extent of your damage, we will take a report.
Please note, Proflight Zambia assumes no liability for damage such as scratches, scuffs, dents, cuts, wheels, handles, pockets, locks, zippers, pull straps, or damage due to over-packing, manufacturer's defects and as a result of the bag's contents. Additionally, the airline is not liable for any damage resulting from inspections by the authorities responsible for security screening. Proflight Zambia will not accept claim for damage (to repair and replace) if the baggage tagged is "Limited Release Tag"; also, damage resulting from over-packing or over weight will not be covered (own risk).
We apologise for any inconvenience you may experience should your bag be delayed. Such isolated incidents are not typical of our high standard of service and we make every effort to locate your property as quickly as possible.
