► ZAMBIA: Proflight Zambia to start Harare & Lubumbashi from June 2012.

Proflight ZambiaProflight Zambia (P0), until recently, an exclusively domestic Zambian carrier, has announced plans to start Lusaka - Harare and Lusaka - Lubumbashi "sometime in June", in its first foray into the regional market that has since been left vacant by the demise of Air Zimbabwe and Zambezi Airlines, though the absolute confirmation is still dependent on completion of bureaucratic formalities.

"Speaking in an interview in Lusaka yesterday shortly after the company celebrated its Women’s Day under the theme ‘celebrating women in aviation’, company Commercial Director Keira Irwin said the regional routes would be launched once the company finalised the necessary documentation.
'We plan to open two direct flights into Harare and Lubumbashi, this will be done once we finalise the documentation like acquiring the aircraft operational certificate and hopefully launch them by the end of June,' she said."

Founded in 1991, Proflight Zambia has maintained a relatively low profile on the regional scene. At present, it serves Lusaka to Livingstone, Mfuwe, Lower Zambezi, Ndola, Solwezi, Chipata, Mansa and Kasama.
