Celebrities and VIP dignitaries mingled with fans and movie-goers last night as Proflight Zambia premiered the latest music video by its supergroup of brand ambassadors Fly5.
Deputy Minister of Tourism and Arts Hon. Esther Banda was guest of honour at the glittering red carpet launch of the video Kwahae, which stars Chef 187, Cleo Ice Queen, Kanji, Kiki and James Sakala and promotes the airline’s hit single Zambian Skies.
Kwahae, meaning “home”, celebrates Zambia as a place that is close to the hearts of all of its residents.
Proflight Zambia has completed the first step towards gaining the top safety accreditation standard in the international aviation industry, paving the way for it to be exempt from the European Union ban on Zambian registered aircraft flying to Europe.
The airline, last week completed the first of three workshops approved under the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) initiative.
IOSA is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline. It is based on industry proven quality audit principles and designed to ensure that each audit is conducted in a standardised manner in order to achieve consistent results.
Proflight Zambia’s new 50-seater jet aircraft recently began operating scheduled flights heralding a new milestone for the airline and greater comfort for passengers.
The Bombardier CRJ-100 aircraft, which was originally introduced on a trial basis in October 2014 to coincide with the 50th Independence celebrations, is now being brought back by the airline on a long-term basis due to popular demand.
The latest addition to the Proflight Zambia fleet means the airline now has a broader range of aircraft in its fleet as well as an ability to carry a larger number of passengers on a single flight.
