PROFLIGHT Zambia will next month reintroduce its 50-seater jet aircraft dubbed Jubilee Jet which will operate on domestic routes.
The Bombardier CRJ-100 aircraft, which was originally introduced on a trial basis in October to coincide with the 50th Independence celebrations, is now being brought back by the airline on a long-term basis due to popular demand.
Proflight director of government and industry affairs captain Philip Lemba said in a statement
yesterday that the airline had grown steadily over the last few years.
“Proflight Zambia has grown steadily but surely over the last few years, adding new routes and growing passenger numbers, hence now is the time to increase our fleet by adding a larger jet aircraft,” he said.
The jet will primarily operate on the Lusaka-Ndola and Lusaka-Solwezi routes adding that it would also be deployed on Lusaka-Mfuwe and Lusaka-Livingstone route when demand is high.
Proflight Zambia celebrates 24 years of operation, this year.
