This is part of airline’s extension service from Lusaka to Dar-es-Salam in Tanzania, which was launched in October last year.
Proflight director of government and industry affairs Captain Philip Lemba said the Proflight Zambia’s Zanzibar service was the latest destination in a strategy of steady route expansion.
“Proflight Zambia’s Zanzibar service is the latest destination in a strategy of steady route expansion from our hub in Lusaka, selectively adding new routes and offering a high quality value-for-money service to discerning travellers,” he said.
In a statement in Lusaka yesterday, he said in less than seven hours, and for a special fare from Lusaka to Zanzibar of just K4, 630 per person, travellers can find themselves transported to one of the world’s premier beach holiday destinations.
The fare includes taxes, free 23kg checked-in baggage allowance, on-board refreshments and administration.
The special deal is available for travel until March 31, 2014, and is operated in partnership with Precision Air, which takes passengers onward from Dar-es-Salaam to Zanizbar.
Proflight Zambia flies three times a week from Lusaka, departing from Lusaka at 8:00 hours on Mondays and Fridays and 12:00 hours on Wednesdays.
