Lufthansa, in cooperation with Eurowings, has introduced new flights connecting Windhoek, Namibia’s capital, with its hub in Frankfurt. The new long-haul connection, which commenced at the end of October, is offered three times a week – on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, departing at 9.30am from Windhoek and arriving at 7.05pm in Frankfurt (local time).
With the new route, passengers from Windhoek gain direct access to 177 destinations in 72 countries benefiting from 2,886 weekly frequencies from Frankfurt alone. Furthermore, passengers profit from the entire Lufthansa Group network of 10,775 weekly frequencies to 270 destinations in 105 countries worldwide.
“We are very proud to be offering this new connection from Namibia’s capital to our largest hub, Frankfurt. With this new flight, customers can have access to our vast worldwide network, and we are looking forward to connecting Namibia with the world. Travellers can benefit from excellent connections and a variety of attractive destinations,” says Dr Andre Schulz, general manager sales – Southern Africa, Lufthansa Group.
The new connection is also attractive for the German outbound market as Namibia is a popular tourist destination, renowned for its amazing nature and the fascinating wildlife.
“I wish to say that we are happy to have the Lufthansa Group as a business and tourism partner and that based on your track record of growth and performance, we know that we can look forward to long and successful partnership as we continue to work to position Namibia as a preferred tourist destination and a logistic hub,” adds John Mutorwa, Namibia’s Minister of Works and Transport.
