On April 1, eTurboNews reported the frustration of the tourism industry over Air Botswana’s decision to cancel its Maun-Cape Town, Maun-Kasane flights, two popular tourist routes. Today Air Botswana sent an announcement directly to eTN stating they wished to inform us that after a short suspension, the airline will be reinstating with immediate effect services on the following two routes:
– Maun – Cape Town
– Maun – Kasane
The airlines issued this statement: “At their inception, the two routes were earmarked to be the gateway between premier tourist destinations in Botswana and South Africa; however, these routes were affected by operational problems that the airline had come to experience. It is after a favorable evaluation and stabilization of our operations that a decision was made to resume services on these routes.
“Our focus at Air Botswana is to give every passenger the best flying experience we can. This means on-time flights, maintaining our fleet in top condition, and being friendly and professional with our customers. By reinstating these routes we can focus our attention on the passengers who have come to expect high levels of service from us while contributing towards the growth of the tourism industry in Botswana.”
Bookings on these routes may begin with immediate effect.
