The airline had previously pencilled in Lusaka - Harare as a potential first regional destination, but later reconsidered that option owing to the presence of Emirates (EK), Ethiopian Airlines (ET), Kenya Airways (KQ) and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL) on the route.

[UPDATE 7 MAY] Lusaka - Lilongwe has now been pushed back until June 18, 2013, while Ndola - Lubumbashi now remains indeterminate. Stay tuned for further updates.

[UPDATE 15 MAY] Proflight Zambia has now confirmed Lusaka - Lilongwe to début from June 4.
