PROFLIGHT Zambia has expanded its cargo capacity by designating some of its fleet to operate dedicated freight flights between Lusaka and Johannesburg.The flights, which commenced last week, will operate every Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout September and will be operated by the Jetstream 41 aircraft and later upgrade to the Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ) if demand increases. Airline director for flight operations Captain Josias Walubita, who will be in the cockpit for some of the flights, is confident that the development will help keep Proflight afloat amid the coronavirus. “Proflight Zambia has invested in having cargo nets made and effective tie-downs procured to ensure that cargo is safely secured in the cabin. Seats on the aircrafts have been removed allowing us to carry all types of cargo including live animals, perishables, and so on. Source: Zambia Daily Mail.
