Getting around by air

Most international flights into Namibia arrive at Windhoek’s Hosea Kutako International Airport, 42km east of the capital. The main domestic carrier is Air Namibia, which flies routes to other parts of Southern Africa as well as long-haul flights to Frankfurt. Most international airlines stop at Johannesburg or Cape Town in South Africa, where you’ll typically switch to a South Africa Airlines flight for your final leg to Windhoek. It may also be cheaper to buy a cheap flight to South Africa and add on a flight to Windhoek (or elsewhere in Namibia) from there. South African Airways has daily flights connecting Cape Town and Johannesburg to Windhoek. Johannesburg is also the main hub for connecting flights to other African cities.

Return flights from Jo’burg to Windhoek are generally a few hundred dollars, although if you book your internal flight at the same time as your main flight, you’ll always get a better deal. Note that the airport departure tax for international flights is included in the cost of your plane ticket.

For North American travellers, it’s worth checking the price of a flight via Frankfurt, as this may be cheaper than a direct flight to South Africa.

Round-the-world tickets can work out cheaper than return tickets for travellers from Australia and New Zealand. The most common African stop is Jo’burg.

Book well in advance for flights from the following neighbouring countries:

Botswana Air Namibia runs several flights a week between Windhoek and Maun.

Zimbabwe Air Namibia flies to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) a few times a week.

Zambia You will need to transit through Jo’burg for flights to Lusaka or Livingstone.

Windhoek’s in-town Eros Airport is mainly for small charter flights, although Air Namibia also runs flights to Katima Mulilo, Ondangwa and Walvis Bay.
