Zambian carrier Proflight Zambia has adjusted its plans to resume operations. The airline will only resume flights with a limited schedule on the Lusaka <> Ndola route from 06 May 2020 and hopes to resume other routes in the coming weeks. Flights to Johannesburg will resume as soon as regulations in South Africa allow international scheduled flights. For now the schedule remains as is for 01 June 2020 onwards. Frequency reductions and potential continued suspension of certain routes are likely to occur. All Proflight Zambia flights will be subject to a minimum number of ticketed passengers by a certain time on the day before flight date. Should the minimum passenger number not be reached, the flight will be canceled and all ticketed passengers rebooked to the next operating flight.
Passengers holding an unused ticket for travel dates between 17 March 2020 – 31 August 2020 will be able to use the full value of the same ticket to travel within 18 months of the original flight date and all change fees or reroute fees will be waivered.
The following flights in May and June 2020 have been canceled:
- Lusaka <> Durban 01 May 2020 – 30 June 2020
- Ndola <> Johannesburg 01 May 2020 – 31 May 2020
- Lusaka <> Solwezi 01 May 2020 – 31 May 2020
- Ndola <> Solwezi 01 May 2020 – 31 May 2020
- Lusaka <> Livingstone 01 May 2020 – 31 May 2020
- Lusaka <> Mfuwe 01 May 2020 – 21 May 2020
- Lusaka <> Ndola 01 May 2020 – 05 May 2020
- Lusaka <> Ndola 06 May 2020 – 31 May 2020 (all flights except for Wednesday/Friday morning/evening)
Flight tickets for travel dates from the 17 March 2020 onwards will remain valid in Proflight Zambia’s system for a period of 18 months from the original flight date and can be rebooked accordingly. Passengers can cancel without rebooking in case new travel dates are not known. The airline’s revised ticket validity gives passengers 18 months to rebook from the original ticketed departure date, so if the original departure date was 01 June 2020, the ticket can be rebooked for a flight on or before 30 November 2021.
