FlyNamibia has announced it will, from April next year, launch flights between Windhoek and Victoria Falls.
The flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays between Hosea Kutako International Airport and Victoria Falls International Airport.
The new route is a key element in Zimbabwe’s regional network expansion strategy, FlyNamibia managing director Andre Compion said.
It will also enhance regional connectivity, promote tourism within Namibia, and position Windhoek as an alternative gateway to the region.
FlyNamibia’s partnership with Airlink will give it access to the GDS, which will allow it to promote its new flights and packages to markets that were previously beyond reach. The airline is also planning to unveil new routes to Botswana and Angola in the future.
The new flights will effectively more than triple FlyNamibia’s current schedule of regional flights.
Compion also revealed that the airline was entering the final phase of preparations for the introduction of flights to Luanda, Angola.
FlyNamibia is a Namibian private airline that mostly plies domestic routes from Eros Airport in Windhoek to Ondangwa, Rundu, Katima Mulilo, Lüderitz, and Oranjemund. The airline also has a regional route between Hosea Kutako International Airport and Cape Town International Airport.
The airline recently became a member of IATA. This membership will give FlyNamibia access to a number of benefits, including global recognition and acceptance, access to IATA’s global network of airlines and travel agents, and support with marketing and sales.
