“Proflight’s new international destination brings opportunities to both Lusaka and Durban, because it offers travellers greater access for both business and leisure. Durban is one of the most important destinations in the region for trade and leisure and this flight offers good connectivity with our domestic flights too,” says Captain Phillip Lemba, Director of Government and Industry Affairs at Proflight Zambia.
The new Proflight route was officially marked with a celebration at the World Routes aviation conference in Durban, attended by Provincial Minister for Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs, Michael Mabuyakhalu and the Mayor of Durban, Cllr. James Nxumalo. Durban is South Africa’s second most important manufacturing hub after Johannesburg, with the presence of a number of major multi-national companies. It is also famous for being the busiest port on the African continent. As from September 22, 2015, Proflight will fly to Durban three times a week, using its 50-seater CRJ-100 aircraft.
