Proflight Zambia has passed a series of international aviation safety audits over the past four years and has now been awarded silver status under the internationally recognized Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) audit system.

Proflight is currently the only Zambian airline to have received this award from the Flight Safety Foundation and, according to Proflight Company Secretary Chitalu Kabalika, the award indicates the commitment of the airline to the safety of its fleet and security of its passengers.

“Safety is the number one priority for Proflight Zambia, and continued recognition of this by international inspectors reinforces our position as Zambia’s leading aviation company,” he said, “The standard is a measure of how seriously we take safety, and how much we are prepared to invest in order to ensure international safety standards are met.”

Proflight Zambia was established in 1991 and now serves as the country’s leading scheduled airline offering domestic and international flights with a growing fleet that includes three 29-seater Jetstream 41 aircraft; four 18-seater Jetstream 32; and two 12-seater Cessna Caravan C208 aircraft.
