Increasing Import Export Opportunities

By providing connectivity from areas including Europe, the Middle East, West Asia, and Australasia, the airline supports the city’s tourism business during peak season arrivals. Soon, the new flights will provide additional connectivity to many local and regional cities around Southern Africa.

There will be more cargo belly hold-up capacity in the newly introduced flights. This will help in increasing import and export opportunities which will help local businesses. The flights will also help in carrying important items like gold, fresh and frozen meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables and pharmaceuticals.
