Coronavirus pandemic: Zambia redirects all international flights to Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (LUN) in Lusaka!
In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Zambia's Government has made the decision to suspend all international flights to Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport (LVI) in Livingstone, Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport (NLA) in Ndola and Mfuwe Airport (MFU) in Mfuwe from midnight on 26 March 2020 for a period of 14 days. Instead, all international flights have to land and depart from Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (LUN) in Lusaka. Through this measure, the Zambian Government aims to ensure an efficient and effective screening of all travellers as well as following them up by the country's health officials. Travellers, who are showing symptoms of Covid-19 upon screening will be quarantined in a medical facility for treatment. All other travellers, who are not showing any symptoms, will be quarantined for at leat 14 days at their own cost.Zambia's Government also obliges its missions abroad and the Department of Immigration to be alert to review the issuance of visa for people wanting to travel to Zambia, as well as at all its ports of entry for all travellers from countries affected by the coronavirus.
