CONDOR resumes flights to Namibia from 3rd May 2021!
[Following Excerpt from CONDOR]
There is currently much optimism for travel to Namibia & East Africa! Flights are available and people are booking! If you’re looking for elbowroom in wide-open spaces away from the throngs, then book your cheap flights to Namibia and start off on your safari!
Namibia offers some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities. The vast expanse of arid land means that this country has the second-lowest population density on the planet. Wildlife and natural wonders are not the only things that prompt visitors to book flights to Namibia.
If you are planning to book a cheap flight to Namibia with Condor, then you have two destinations from which to choose. The major hub is located in the capital city of Windhoek, which lies centrally within the country. The other destination Condor services on flights to Namibia is Walvis Bay. This airport is located on the Atlantic coast in the western part of the country. If your flight to Namibia arrives in Windhoek, then you’ll be landing at Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport. This efficient airport was renovated in 2009, so you can expect modern services and facilities. If your flight to Namibia is headed for Walvis Bay Airport, you will land about 15 km east of the town. Either way, a bus or taxi is the best way to reach the city.
Who is travelling right now and where are they coming from?
In 2020 Dubai Tourism identified this opportunity and increased its cooperation with Russian, Czech, Polish and Hungarian influencers; consumer response has been overwhelmingly positive. With the closure of ski resorts open-for-business warm-weather destinations have done well from CEE over the winter months, with the Maldives, Dominican Republic, Kenya and Zanzibar noted as being top sellers.
Leading Polish OTA Esky reports an increase in sales of 280% to Zanzibar when comparing January 2021 with the same month in 2020. Czech flight consolidator Letuska.cz reports 470 flight sales to Zanzibar for the months of January-February, and there are reports of a new charter flight from Prague to Zanzibar to be launched in February with Czech low-cost carrier Smartwings. African DMCs report good sales from CEE in both East Africa and Namibia, which caught the public imagination in CEE following the abolishing of visas in 2018.
