Air Namibia launches international routes in southern Africa
Air Namibia expanded its network in southern Africa in the last week as the airline launched three new international routes with the arrival of its fourth 37-seat ERJ135. From its base in the Namibian capital Windhoek (WDH), the airline began serving neighbouring Botswana’s capital Gaborone (GBE) in the east and Ondjiva (VPE) in southern Angola to the north on 15 May. Each of the two routes is operated three times weekly. The following day, Air Namibia launched four weekly flights to the capital of Zimbabwe; Harare (HRE). This is the first time that there is a non-stop service between Windhoek and Ondjiva, while Gaborone and Harare haven’t been connected with the Namibian capital since the 1990s.
