Proflight Zambia will launch four-times-a-week passenger flights to Johannesburg from Zambia’s Lusaka capital from October 1.

This comes barely days after South African President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the country would reopen its international borders on October 1, 2020, under level 1 of lockdown.

The airline will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, with the addition of twice-weekly cargo flights departing from Lusaka on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Proflight becomes the first in Zambia to ferry passengers and cargo to The City of Gold under the new normal.

“We are excited to announce our new route – Lusaka-Joburg. This is a great opportunity for all citizens in Zambia to travel to Jozi – whether for business or leisure – on our comfortable plane,” said Proflight Zambia Director Flight Operations Captain Josias Walubita.

The first Lusaka-Joburg flight, scheduled for October 1 is already receiving overwhelming response from the public.

“So far, the response from the general public has been great. We have a lot of interest from the public for this route,” he noted.

Capt. Walubita explained that introduction of the Lusaka-Joburg route was an indication of Proflight Zambia’s commitment to growth and regional expansion.

“It’s just plane smart for us to spread our wings from Lusaka to Johannesburg. It’s simply amazing that this expansion allows us to link our esteemed customers to two hives of commercial activity. It is indeed a great achievement and a milestone in our growth as an airliner,” he said.

Capt. Walubita urged Lusaka residents and businesspeople alike to get on board and assured them safety against COVID-19.

“We are also adhering to public health guidelines on COVID-19 throughout the journey,” he stressed.

Flight P0020/ 21 will operate on Mondays and Wednesdays departing from Lusaka at 08:00 and arriving in Johannesburg at 10:00. The return flight leaves Johannesburg at 12:00 arriving in Lusaka at 14:00.

On Fridays and Sundays P0024/ 25 leaves Lusaka at 12:00 arriving in Johannesburg at 14:00. The return flight leaves at 15:00 and is back in Lusaka at 17:00.

Additional days will be added when demand increases and we will look at re introducing our direct Ndola/ Johannesburg and Lusaka/ Durban flights at a later date.

Eligibility to enter South Africa is subject to the South African COVID-19 entry regulations once they are released in the coming days.
