Travellers can now book flights from across Zambia to Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and East London in South Africa under a new agreement between Proflight Zambia and SA Express.
Under the sales and purchase agreement, customers will be able to make joint Proflight Zambia-SA Express bookings and will be issued with a single combined ticket. This will enable unbroken connections to and from Proflight’s domestic destinations: Lusaka, Ndola, Livingstone, Mfuwe, Solwezi, Kasama, and Lower Zambezi, as well as its two international routes, Lilongwe in Malawi and Durban in South Africa.
It will enable Proflight customers to book flights to three destinations within the SA Express network: Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and East London, all of which are frequented by Zambian tourists, business executives, school-goers and academics.
“South Africa is an important hub for travellers in the region,” Proflight Director of Government and Industry Affairs said Captain Philip Lemba.
“This agreement with SA Express enables Proflight passengers to book seamlessly from anywhere in Zambia to Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and/or East London; and indeed overseas travellers can book and travel straight to their final destination within Zambia.”
The latest move is expected to boost in-bound tourism to Zambia, attract more business travellers, and make it easier for Zambian travellers, particularly children enrolled in South African boarding schools, to travel with ease.
