Proflight Zambia staff prepare to welcome passengers on board

Proflight Zambia has halved its airfares for young flyers, giving children even more opportunity to explore Zambia.

The airline has also broadened the age range for youngsters eligible for discounted fares, enabling anyone under the age of 18 to qualify for reduced fares.

The new policy comes into effect from September 1, 2014 and will continue until further notice for bookings made from Zambia and Malawi.

“Proflight Zambia’s vision is for as many people as possible to see the wonders of our nation – and we firmly believe that starts with encouraging the younger generation to explore the sights, sounds and tastes of their heritage,” said Proflight Director of Government and Industry Affairs Captain Philip Lemba.

The airline’s new fare system means children aged between two and 17-years-old will now pay half of the adult fare, a discount of 50 per cent, instead of the previous discount of 25 per cent. Infants under two-years-old pay just 10 percent of the full fare.

Young flyers will also receive spot prizes on selected scheduled slights to keep them entertained during flights.

Child bookings made outside of Zambia and Malawi will remain at the existing industry-standard fare scale, paying 75 per cent of the adult fare, if aged between two and 11-years-old.

Proflight’s new children’s fares come in the wake of the airline’s announcement that it is offering up to 20 percent discounts on flights for recognised holders of international student identity cards (ISIC), under a new agreement initiated by STA Travel, the world’s largest student travel company.

The airline, which celebrates 23 years of operation this year flies from its base in Lusaka to Livingstone, Ndola, Kasama, Chipata, Mansa, Mfuwe, Solwezi and Lower Zambezi, as well as to Lilongwe in Malawi.

Bookings are also available online at where payment can be made using any Visa, MasterCard or American Express debit or credit card as well as using Airtel Money or PayPal.
