Please be advised that further to previous correspondence we understand that a NEW airport tax (the Aviation Infrastructure and Development Fee) in Zambia will be enforced on the 1st of October.  It will no longer be included on the ticket and will now be collected in Zambian Kwacha cash direct from the passenger. The amount payable is currently K28,000 for Domestic Flights and K56,000 for International Flights and is payable on departure from all Zambian airports.
