The morning schedule will to prove popular for business travellers from both countries, and adds a third international route for the airline, which also flies from Lusaka to Durban in South Africa and Lilongwe in Malawi, in addition to linking all the main provincial centres within Zambia.
“Zimbabwe’s long-held historic ties with Zambia make it an obvious choice for Proflight’s largest route. The neighbouring countries share business, tourism and family links and we are confident that our morning service will complement existing afternoon services on the route,” said Proflight director of government and industry affairs, Captain Philip Lemba.
“Air transport provides important economic contributions to economies. Through its impact on industries, it facilitates economic and development growth. Proflight continues to help countries participate in the global market by increasing access to main markets and allowing the globalisation of production,” he added.
Proflight provides a vital link for trade because it provides opportunities for businesses to import or export goods and services.
“These are of economic value to countries,” Capt Lemba added. “The relationship between Zambian and Zimbabwean trade is very important to Proflight.”
Lusaka is about 395km flying distance from Harare and the journey takes only 70 minutes by air, compared with a journey by road of more than seven hours.
