Industry: Airlines       

Trade and tourism ties between Malawi and Zambia will be given a boost next month when Proflight Zambia begins a three-times-a-week service to Lilongwe from Lusaka.

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - May 29th, 2013 - Trade and tourism ties between Malawi and Zambia will be given a boost next month when Proflight Zambia begins a three-times-a-week service to Lilongwe from Lusaka.

The new route, which will be launched on June 4, will be the first international destination for the airline, which already flies to nine domestic points in Zambia, including Lusaka, Livingstone, Ndola and Mfuwe.

“Proflight Zambia has grown from a solid base and is now looking forward to bringing its services to Malawi,” said the airline’s Director of Government and Industry Affairs Capt. Philip Lemba. “We expect that the new three-times a week service will boost trade and tourism ties between the two countries, with all the economic benefits that brings.”

Flights to Lilongwe from the Zambian capital will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, departing from Lilongwe at 17:55 and arriving in Lusaka at 19:35. The inbound flight leaves Lusaka at 15:30 and arrives in Lilongwe at 17:10 on the same days.

The service also provides seamless connections to and from Emirates flights, which arrive in Lusaka from Dubai at 14:25 and depart from Lusaka for Dubai at 21:25 daily.

Return fares from Lusaka to Lilongwe start from around US$266 and will operate initially with Proflight’s 29-seater Jetstream 41 aircraft.
