05 May, 2022- Gaborone – Air Botswana is pleased to announce the re-commencement of flights between Gaborone, Harare and Lusaka from 6th May 2022. Customers will enjoy two (2) weekly direct flights on Fridays and Sundays during this initial phase. Frequencies will be increased to three (3) times weekly as demand builds up.
We are pleased about this development. It heralds that travel demand is gradually increasing after the global paralysis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are optimistic that, in due course, the desire to travel will be even stronger and have positioned ourselves to cope with the much-anticipated travel demand both locally and regionally”,
The airline will deploy its EMBRAER 170 Jet to service this route and some of its regional routes including Gaborone-Cape Town.
