Fly Namibia, rebranded from Fly WestAir, is a carrier with a massive focus on showcasing the beauty of their country to anyone who would love to visit. Fly Namibia is a relatively new airline and officially had its first scheduled passenger flight on the 24th of June 2019.
Its main goal as an independent airline in Namibia, is to connect people, primarily on domestic flights. They have been making international strides, offering fantastic flights to Cape Town and back, the first of many more international flights coming soon.
And with there being no more Air Namibia flights, Fly Namibia is slowly becoming the country's primary mode of aerial travel.
FlyNamibia has experienced staff dedicated to providing quality services in the air and on the ground. They prioritise the safety of all their passengers and prioritise security.
Located in a country rich in natural beauty, Fly Namibia’s safari project offers passengers the opportunity to view some of the country's greatest attractions with the airline. Creating a more convenient way to book your holiday in Namibia.
Since it came into existence, Fly Namibia has been focusing on growth and are planning to offer their services to more major cities in other countries soon.
Fly Namibia has changed ever since it came into existence. When the Namibian Transport Commission awarded them their carrier status, they were known as Fly Westair. Their mother company, Westair Aviation, started as an aircraft maintenance facility before becoming a fully-fledged carrier.
Westair is also the number one aircraft aviation company in Namibia, and the company inspired their name. However, in November 2021, they made a bold decision to rebrand and has been named FlyNamibia ever since.
The inspiration behind the rebrandings was to change its values and its mission. Now they strive to create an airline that represents Namibia, an airline that they can champion and be proud of.
Since their first flight was in 2019, they don't offer a lot of routes yet but have quite a few domestic flights available.
Fly Namibia offers all the above mentioned routes in reserve as well.
Times and prices vary depending on the distance and the city you travel to. Regional flight time ranges from 30 minutes to one hour or slightly more. Namibia flights are also cheaper.
International flights are longer, but since they only offer flights to and from Cape Town, the duration is two hours or more. Ticket prices can also vary depending on the date and the time you choose to fly. And all take-off times are similar to Westair Namibia flight schedules.
As you all know, Namibia is an excellent safari and tourist destination. The country has a vast array of safari zones that is well worth the visit and famous landmarks.
Fly Namibia is an airline that has taken full advantage of the destination's beauty. They have named their tourist attraction project Fly Namibia Safari, and the aim is to help visitors explore the sights in the country.
Fly Namibia Safari adds convenience if you already plan to use the airline to travel to or around Namibia. The schedule and flight time accommodates every flight, including the flights to Namibia from Cape Town.
