Proflight Zambia and RwandAir have signed a codeshare agreement on the Lusaka-Johannesburg route with RwandAir as the operating carrier and Proflight Zambia as the marketing carrier.

Starting March 27, 2015 the flights will be operated three-times-a-week with RwandAir’s Boeing 737-800 Next Generation dual class aircraft.

The agreement is Proflight’s first code-share, and is distinct from the existing interline agreements it has in place with other airlines.

“Proflight Zambia can now proudly say that it is offering a direct service from Lusaka to Johannesburg, and of course the flight also connects into our domestic network of destinations, providing added convenience and value for Zambian passengers,” said Captain Philip Lemba, Proflight Director of Government and Industry Affairs.

“We highly value our new code share partnership with Proflight and are thrilled to see African carriers creating partnerships, synergy and affordability for the benefit of the travelling public,” said Mr Gobena Mikael, GM Commercial of RwandAir.
