Zambia new flight departure charges

Zambia Civil Aviation Authority has introduced a Passenger Safety Charge for all flight departures originating within Zambia effective 01Dec16. 

·        Domestic flight USD5.00, with domestic to domestic (any airport/airstrip) transfers exempt for arrivals within 12 hours of departure.

·        International flight USD10.00

·        Infants under 2 years of age exempt

·        Provisional bookings with fare already stored will be considered before the Start Date and therefore exempt even if ticketed on/after 01Dec16.  However, any name change or flight change to such provisional bookings will require a new fare quote and as such, the new tax will then apply

·        Ticketed bookings before the Start Date with flight changes on/after 01Dec16 will have the new tax applied regardless of class.
