The first direct flight connection between Europe and Namibia since the official reopening of borders on Sept. 1 resumed on Sunday when a Eurowings flight landed at Namibia’s flagship airport.
The Eurowings flight signals the restart of the nonstop scheduled Frankfurt-Windhoek service and is an important step to enable European leisure and business travelers to travel in safety and comfort to Namibia.
Namibia’s Minister of Tourism Pohamba Shifeta at the welcome event said after many months in the fight against the global pandemic, they are delighted to welcome international guests to Namibia again.
“The re-launch of the Lufthansa Group’s direct flights from Europe is very important for our country and supports our international tourism revival initiative,” he said.
Meanwhile, Eurowings will commence operating three direct weekly flights on the Windhoek-Frankfurt route, taking place every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday departing from Windhoek at 08:20 and arriving in Frankfurt on the same day at 18:50
