Ethiopian Airlines to resume flight service to Namibia

Ethopian Airlines has announced that as Namibia reopens its borders, the airline plans to resume flights to Namibia, as part of the Tourism Revival Initiative, the company said.

Namibia announced last week it would open its borders to visitors amid the country´s Covid-19 stage of emergency lockdown.

Travellers will only be allowed to enter the country via Hosea Kutako International Airport. The country´s ports and road borders will remain closed.

Namibia´s tourism sector has been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic due to the closure of borders and complete absence of visitors from abroad over the past months, environment and tourism minister Pohamba Shifeta said last week.
