Getting around by air

Zambia’s main international airport is in Lusaka. Some international airlines also fly to the airport at Livingstone (for Victoria Falls), Mfuwe (for South Luangwa National Park) and Ndola.

The country is increasingly well connected with direct flights to destinations outside Africa. British Airways has thrice-weekly flights from London, KLM/Air France from Amsterdam and Emirates from Dubai.

For North Americans who don't want to fly to London or Amsterdam first, South African Airways (www.flysaa.com) has daily direct flights from New York City to Johannesburg. From here there are regular flights to Lusaka, Ndola and Livingstone.

Zambia is also well connected with Southern Africa.

Air Malawi (www.flyairmalawi.com) connects Lusaka with Lilongwe and Blantyre three times a week, and with Blantyre twice a week; while Air Zimbabwe (www.airzimbabwe.com) flies to Harare.

It’s also easy to find a flight between Nairobi (Kenya); alternatively, it’s a short hop between Dar es Salaam and Lusaka. Coming from Cairo (Egypt) or Ethiopia, most flights to Southern Africa go via Nairobi.

There is also an increasing number of flights to Livingstone for Victoria Falls; South African Airways, British Airways and Kulula fly there from Johannesburg.
