PROFLIGHT’S LUSAKA-HARARE ROUTE INCREASES CONVENIENT REGIONAL TRAVEL
New route boosts inter-country trade and tourism
LUSAKA, ZAMBIA – Proflight Zambia’s Lusaka-Harare route has increased international travel between the two countries since the route began operating in July. The airline’s efficient early morning flight schedule – operating four times weekly – has proven convenient for both business travellers and tourists alike, in both directions. “We were positive the route would be beneficial to Zambians and Zimbabweans. The 70-minute flight between Lusaka and Harare creates a highly efficient means of travel,” says Proflight’s Director of Government and Industry Affairs, Capt. Philip Lemba. “From the moment we launched flights on Lusaka-Harare route, Proflight has seen noticeable growth on its passenger movements and connectivity between the two capitals. Our flights have been efficient, fixed and on schedule.” Travellers from Harare can connect onwards with Proflight’s domestic flights to Ndola, Solwezi and Mfuwe, and internationally to Lilongwe, Malawi and Durban, South Africa. Capt. Lemba added: “The route has created a deeper synergy between the two countries, not only as neighbours, but as partners in trade and tourism development.”
The new route also signifies its commitment to boosting international trade and increasing economic value for both countries in trade and tourism activities. Proflight continues to help countries participate on the global stage by increasing access to main markets and allowing easier globalisation of production. The neighbouring countries are now sharing more business, tourism and family links and Proflight is delivering a safe, effective and efficient means of travel.
Lusaka is about 395km flying distance from Harare and the one hour ten minute journey compares favourably with an average road journey of more than seven hours.
