Proflight Zambia, a trading name of Proflight Commuter Services Ltd, is an airline based in Lusaka, Zambia that serves the business community and tourism industry. Following the demise of Zambia’s two national carriers Zambian Airways and Zambezi Airlines, Proflight Zambia now operates the largest fleet of aircraft in Zambia, operating both scheduled and charter flights.
Proflight Air Services was founded in 1991 by ex-Zambia Airways pilot Tony Irwin. He began by operating charters within Zambia and the region. In 1997, he obtained his first license to operate schedules to Mfuwe.
In 2004 Proflight Air Services attracted new investors and formed Proflight Commuter Services which began scheduled services to the Copperbelt, Luangwa Valley, Victoria Falls and Lower Zambezi.
In March 2013 Proflight took delivery of its first jet aircraft, a Boeing 737-200, and later in 2013 began regional scheduled service to Lilongwe, Malawi, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, although the Boeing was returned to the lessor, Star Air Cargo, in 2014.
In March 2015, Proflight Zambia and Rwandair signed a codeshare agreement on the Lusaka – Johannesburg route with Rwandair as the operating carrier and Proflight Zambia as the Marketing carrier.
