FlyNamibia launches Windhoek, Walvis Bay to Cape Town flights

September 22, 2023 1305

FlyNamibia has launched flights connecting Windhoek and Walvis Bay to Cape Town four times a week.

The airline will operate the flights every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, starting from October 29, 2023.

“The new route’s flights will run from Hosea Kutako International Airport (HKIA) to Cape Town (CPT), and onwards to Walvis Bay (WVB). From here the flight will then link back to Hosea Kutako International Airport, back to Walvis Bay, onward to Cape Town and returning once again to Hosea Kutako International. Thus the CPT-WVB route will be extended from WVB to HKIA and then back to WVB, providing WVB with flights to Windhoek once again. This will enable connecting traffic from all flights inbound to HKIA to fly to WVB,” the airline said on Friday.

"This strategic schedule has been designed to offer flexibility to both business and leisure travellers, making it easier than ever to explore the stunning landscapes, vibrant culture, and economic opportunities found in Windhoek, Walvis Bay, and Cape Town. FlyNamibia's new route will open doors for tourism, trade, and personal connections between these vibrant locations.”

FlyNamibia's Managing Director, André Compion, said the introduction of the route is part of the airline's commitment to expanding its network and enhancing travel options for its passengers.

"We believe this route will not only serve the needs of our valued customers but also contribute to the growth and development of our country and the region," he said.

The announcement follows FlyNamibia's decision in July to discontinue domestic flights to the coastal town of Walvis Bay, citing the economic unsustainability of the route despite several interventions.

FlyNamibia currently operates domestic routes from Eros Airport in Windhoek to Ondangwa, Rundu, Katima Mulilo, Lüderitz, and Oranjemund, as well as a regional route between Hosea Kutako International Airport and Cape Town International.

FlyNamibia Safari connects travellers between Hosea Kutako International Airport and Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, Twyfelfontein, Etosha - Ongava, Etosha - Mokuti, as well as from Eros Windhoek to Rundu.
