By Business Reporter

FLYWESTAIR has announced the addition of two new destinations to their flight schedule – Rundu and Katima Mulilo.

Departing from Eros Airport in Windhoek, the incorporation of these new scheduled routes will connect Namibians and visitors between the capital and the north-eastern regions and beyond.

FlyWestair’s domestic flight schedule, offers five weekly flights between Eros Airport in Windhoek and Andimba Toivo Ya Toivo Airport in Ondangwa.

“We will offer two weekly flights service between Rundu and Windhoek as of 24th of August 2021, as well as three weekly flights between Katima Mulilo and Windhoek starting 25th August 2021.

“These destinations are integral hubs for so many of our nation’s north-eastern denizens. FlyWestair would like to continue our pledge to support and connect Namibians. Katima Mulilo, the capital of the Zambezi region, is an important gateway to other SADC nations, notably Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Not only will the introduction of these two destinations help relieve the weight of travel for those who live there and conduct business, but it will also support our crucial, currently downtrodden tourism industry,” the company said in a statement last week.

The introduction of Katima and Rundu is set to ease travel for visitors to Namibia who would like to include the Kavango and Zambezi regions in their itinerary, but do not have sufficient days in their schedule for the long drives.

For international travellers, FlyWestair is offering easy and convenient Covid testing at our Eros Airport offices. FlyWestair requires all passengers to follow strict Covid-19 regulations and to wear their mask correctly for the duration of every flight.

We have also added a temporary policy where clients receive one free date amendment on their booking. We are here to support you during these uncertain times,” added the company.

FlyWestair is a Namibian privately owned airline, the first of its kind in Namibia committed to providing an admirable travel experience with consistent on-time performance.
