Popular Zambian attractions such as the Victoria Falls - one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World - can now be accessed with a single ticket purchase and smooth connections from any of Emirates destinations worldwide. 

Safari-goers for example will be able to book straight through to Mfuwe for the world renowned wildlife haven of South Luangwa National Park, while business customers can travel direct from Lusaka to the Copper belt city of Ndola on scheduled Proflight services timed for smooth transfers with in-bound and out-bound Emirates flights in Lusaka. 

"Our new partnership with Proflight Zambia opens up a wide range of Zambian destinations for Emirates customers, making exploring Zambia more easy and convenient than ever before. What's more customers will enjoy even better value for money when they purchase their Emirates and Proflight Zambia flights together," said Orhan Abbas, Emirates Senior Vice-President for Latin America, Central and Southern Africa.  

Under the new agreement, customers will be able to purchase joint Emirates-Proflight Zambia itineraries and will be issued with a single combined ticket. This will enable seamless connections to and from Proflight's eight domestic destinations: Ndola, Livingstone, Mfuwe, Solwezi, Chipata, Mansa, Kasama and Mongu, as well as the local airline's two international routes, Lilongwe in Malawi and Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania, with Emirates' daily Lusaka service. 

Emirates operates daily scheduled flights from Malta to Dubai. On Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays Emirates flies via Larnaka, Cyprus, while on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays, the airline operates direct flights from Dubai to Malta and return flights fly via Tripoli.
