In March and April 2021, the group will be adding a fourth and fifth frequency between Windhoek and Frankfurt, further strengthening the commitment and ties to the Namibian market. Details of these additional flight frequencies are highlighted below:


These new frequencies will be serviced by an Airbus A330 and are subject to final government approval, however they are already bookable online as well as via the GDS. As you may have already experienced, the various entry regulations and restrictions are extremely fluid and ever changing.

As of 14 January 2021, the regulations for travelers entering Germany from risk areas has been updated. Currently Namibia has been identified as a Level 1 risk area by the Robert Koch Institute. This means that all travelers entering Germany from a risk area such as Namibia, are required to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test. The test can be carried out up to 48 hours after entry and must be reported to the competent authorities. Passengers who are only transiting through Germany from a level 1 area, as well as Children under 6 years of age are exempt from the obligation to test or provide proof. The Level 1 risk status for Namibia is subject to change at short notice, based on the infection rate per week, and could therefore raise additional measures for entry into Germany.

In addition, a mandatory ten-day quarantine continues to apply for all travelers entering Germany from a risk area. Travelers are also required to complete the Digital Entry Application: www.einreiseanmeldung.de or a substitute application prior to departure.

The current classification of all countries and regions is available on the website of the Robert Koch Institute via the following link: www.rki.de/risikogebiete . The entry requirements for passengers traveling to Namibia remain unchanged.
