Buy Fly Namibia Flights with Alternative Airlines

FlyNamibia is a Namibian airline that offers local and regional flights from Namibia. The airline is based at Windhoek-Eros and Windhoek-Hosea Kutako airports and flies to over 5 destinations across Namibia and South Africa.

The airline is owned by Westair Aviation and launched under the name FlyWestair in 2019. In 2021, FlyWestair rebranded to FlyNamibia, which is the name that the airline flies under today. Along with the rebrand, FlyNamibia announced the launch of new routes, flying to popular Namibian safari destinations.

FlyNamibia is currently the only active Namibian airline. This makes it one of the top choices for flights into the country. Although the airline doesn't fly directly to Namibia from many other countries, it connects Namibia with Cape Town and Johannesburg, which are both gateways into Africa for the rest of the world.

FlyNamibia gives a free carry-on baggage allowance and free checked baggage allowance on all of its flights. Read below to find out the limits for each type of baggage.

Frequent Flyer Programme

The airline doesn't have a frequent flyer programme that is currently active. It was looking to launch a programme in 2020. However, plans were put on hold due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

It's unknown at this time whether FlyNamibia will resume plans to launch a programme. They didn't mention anything about a new frequent flyer programme when they rebranded in 2021.

Airline Alliance

FlyNamibia isn't a member of any airline alliance. However, it does increase its connectivity through a codeshare/interline agreement with FlyNamibia. This allows you to book connecting flights on both carriers under the same itinerary, without having to worry about missed connections.
