Qatar Airways has launched service to Namibia as its inaugural flight recently landed in Windhoek.

The airline's four weekly flights to and from Namibia's capital will be serviced by the Boeing 787 Dreamliner through Qatar Airways' hub in Doha.

"The new flight route provides the opportunity to promote Namibia as a business and leisure destination amongst Qatar Airways’ wide network of travelers," Namibia Tourism Board CEO Digu Naobeb said. "The route not only improves connections with mature destinations, but allows Namibia to tap into new markets that are also served by the airline."

With the new Namibia service, Qatar Airways now provides flights to 23 destinations in Africa.

"We are delighted to extend our network within Africa by adding the premium leisure and business destination of Windhoek to our route map," Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said. "Africa remains one of our key target areas for growth, and we have identified Namibia as an important African nation to include in our expansion plans."

Qatar Airways features a network of more than 150 destinations around the world.
