Posted 30 August 2016 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Airlines will commence services to Windhoek, Namibia, via Gaborone, starting from October 6, 2016.

Windhoek is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Namibia, headquartering most of the national enterprises and cultural institutions.

Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said, “ As a Pan-African airline, it has always been our source of pride to connect Africa together and to the rest of the world. The addition of Windhoek to our ever expanding network brings  our African destinations to 53, the largest coverage unrivalled by any other carrier. I believe, the commencement of this flight will surely give our customer more convenient option to travel to Namibia. We will continue to expand our reach in our home market in Africa with a view to support to the continent’s socio-economic integration and development.”

Ethiopian will be deploying the Boeing 737 on the route.
