LUSAKA, ZAMBIA – Proflight connects the Copperbelt by announcing the relaunch of Ndola-Joburg direct flights in addition to the recently announced Ndola-Mansa direct flights.

Travellers from the Copperbelt can enjoy easy travel to the ‘City of Gold’ starting April 25th 2022. Flights from Ndola will operate 3 times a week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, departing at 08:10hrs and arriving in Joburg at 10:40hrs.

Proflight is relaunching the route as it recognises its importance, especially for business travellers from the region. Capt. Walubita noted that opening the route would facilitate trade, especially as the world readjusts to a new normal and endeavours to spur on the economy in the wake of COVID-19.

This is in line with our commitment to fostering growth in the economy by offering connections between more local destinations and beyond,” said Capt. Walubita. Our new Ndola-Joburg direct flight offers a morning flight option to South Africa enabling same day onward connections to passenger’s final destination domestically and offers a later departure out of Joburg allowing same day connections from other cities in South Africa.  We will maintain our convenient connections via Lusaka on all other days giving travellers the option of up to ten weekly flights between the Copperbelt and Johannesburg.  Proflight Zambia is offering a free checked baggage allowance on the Ndola-Joburg route of
