Africa’s Low Fare Airline, FlyAfrica which quit Zimbabwe last week after a fraud scandal fingered on a black Zimbabwean shareholder who stole over $140,000, has moved to Namibia where it has launched Windhoek- to – Cape Town flights.

FlyAfrica successfully launched its inaugural Windhoek to Cape Town flight on Monday 2 November with the on time departure of N6 347 from Windhoek at 10:55AM, the company said in a statement.

“Today’s flight is another positive step in the growth of our Namibian airline,” says Clifford Strydom CEO of flyafrica Namibia. “Our flights to Johannesburg have become very popular and now, with the addition of Cape Town, Namibians can enjoy low fares to another popular destination. flyafrica Namibia has grown rapidly over the past 2 months since our first flight from Windhoek to Johannesburg and we are excited to see this growth continue.”

With its trademark low fares, which on the Windhoek – Cape Town route start from 499NAD/ZAR, flyafrica Namibia anticipates high demand for this new flight and hopes to introduce daily service in the near future.

“We are heading into the festive period, and we would much rather have passengers spend their money on their families than on paying unfairly high prices to airlines,” said Clifford. “The purpose of flyafrica.com is to reduce the cost of travel in Africa, we are proud to be part of that revolution.”

Passengers can book flights now on www.flyafrica.com, via our call centre or at our local sales offices. This is the fifth regional route operated by the flyafrica.com family of airlines and the 2nd regional route for Namibia flyafrica, the newest member of the family.

“This important milestone for flyafrica Namibia highlights the significance of more competition and passenger choice on this route,” explains Clifford Strydom. “flyafrica Namibia’s continued expansion celebrates the airline’s vision of an integrated continent by opening the skies to direct affordable travel between African countries and enhancing air connectivity across Africa.”
