Flyafrica prepares Namibia launch


According to Routes Online, flyafrica will launch its Namibian subsidiary on 2 September, with services initially operating between Windhoek and Johannesburg using locally-registered Boeing 737-500s.

Flights were initially intended to commence in February, but the launch was delayed.

Namibia flyafrica will operate scheduled regional flights from Namibia to South Africa, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

The Windhoek-Johannesburg route is currently dominated by Air Namibia, South African Airways and British Airways.

Zimbabwe flyafrica was the first of the group to commence operations, when it began serving the Victoria Falls-Johannesburg market in July 2014.

Flyafrica celebrated its first birthday last month, and now flies to a number of destinations in South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, from its base at Harare International Airport.
