Maun-based MackAir has been licensed by Civil Aviation Authority of Botswana to operate scheduled services three times a week between Maun and Windhoek.

Michael Weyl, MackAir Spokesperson, says flights will commence in April using a Cessna Grand Caravan C208ex. with a capacity of 10 passengers. Weyl says the new route will enhance connectivity and avoid passengers having to connect via Gaborone or Johannesburg.

The flight will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, departing Maun at 13h30 and arriving in Windhoek at 15h50. The return flight, on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, will depart Windhoek at 10h00 and arrive at Maun at 12h20.

Bookings will open on December 1.
