LUSAKA, ZAMBIA – Proflight Zambia and South Africa Airways (SAA) have signed an interline agreement that will enable passengers to travel easily across the networks of both airlines with a single booking.
Under the agreement, customers will be able to make joint Proflight Zambia-SAA bookings and will be issued with a single combined ticket. This will enable seamless connections to and from Proflight’s domestic destinations: Lusaka, Ndola, Livingstone, Mfuwe, Solwezi, Kasama, Lower Zambezi, as well as its two international routes, Lilongwe in Malawi and Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
It will enable Proflight customers to book flights to 57 destinations within the SAA network, and for passengers to travel more easily to provincial destinations throughout Zambia.
The interline is expected to boost in-bound tourism to Zambia, attract more business travellers, and make it easier for Zambian travellers to explore destinations internationally.
“South Africa is an important hub for travellers in the region,” said Captain Philip Lemba, Proflight Director of Government and Industry Affairs. “This agreement with SAA enables Proflight passengers to book seamlessly from anywhere in Zambia to destinations across the SAA network; and indeed overseas travellers can book and travel straight to their final destination within Zambia.”
“Proflight will assist South African Airways with onward connections from the airports SAA flies to in Zambia, i.e. Lusaka, Ndola and Livingstone,” says Vincent Mupwaya, SAA Country Manager Zambia
Customers will enjoy a range of added benefits, including special fares on itineraries across the two airlines.
