Proflight to link Ndola, Solwezi

KALONDE NYATI, Lusaka
AS PROFLIGHT strives to boost commerce in the mining provinces of Copperbelt and North Western, the airline will next week launch direct flights between Ndola and Solwezi.
The flights will contribute to the investment and the tourism potential, according to a statement issued by Langmead & Baker Limited.
Effective January 16, 2017, Proflight will launch three direct flights providing convenient travel between the Copperbelt business hub and the North-Western Province mining hub.
Commenting on the development, Proflight director of Government and industry affairs Philip Lemba said, “The new scheduled service from Ndola to Solwezi will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and will take just one hour, compared to the lengthy and uncomfortable road trip between the two urban centres, and a longer flight via Lusaka.
“Ndola, being the industrial and commercial centre of the Copperbelt, and Solwezi being one of the most important cities in the mining sector, make significant contribution to the economy of the country,” Captain Lemba said.
“We take keen interest in improving the tourism industry in Zambia. With the steps taken by the government to protect the West Lunga eco-system, Proflight will increase traffic for tourists coming to visit the West Lunga Park and other wildlife attractions, by flying them on its Ndola-Solwezi direct flight,” he said.
