Proflight eyes regional expansion

Zambian airline, Proflight, has unveiled plans to extend its network of regional routes it operates from its Lusaka hub.

Flights to Johannesburg, Gabon, Entebbe and Dar es Salaam are all being evaluated by the airline, which celebrates 27 years of operation this year.

The additional routes will be made possible due to Proflight’s plans to invest and grow its fleet of aircraft. It currently operates a 50-seater Bombardier CRJ-100 jet, three 29-seater Jetstream 41 aircraft and two C208 Caravans. Plans are at an advanced stage to add a further 50-seat Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft to the fleet.
