Market overview

The aviation market in Namibia has experienced significant growth in recent years, driven by the country’s expanding economy and growing tourism industry. As a result, Namibia has become a popular destination for both business and leisure travelers, with several airlines offering regular flights to and from the country.

One of the key players in the Namibian aviation market is Fly Namibia, which operates regular domestic and international flights to various destinations in Southern Africa with a fleet of  Embraer ERJ-135 aircraft.

These airlines offer a range of domestic and international flights, connecting Namibia to destinations worldwide.

The growth of the aviation market in Namibia has also led to the development of new infrastructure and facilities to support the industry.

The airport now has modern facilities, including a new terminal building, improved runway, and upgraded air traffic control systems.

The Namibian government has also taken steps to support the growth of the aviation market, including the development of policies and regulations to promote safety and security in the industry.
