Air Botswana

Advert Travel Gazette

Air Botswana was founded on 2 July 1972 to succeed two failed former national airlines: Botswana National Airways (1966–1969) and Botswana Airways Corporation (1970–1971).

Air Botswana Corporation is Botswana’s state-owned national flag carrier, with its headquarters located in Gaborone.

It operates scheduled domestic and regional flights from its main base at Sir Seretse Khama International Airport.

Air Botswana has been loss-making for several years, and there have been various attempts to privatise the company, and frequent changes to the corporation’s management and board, so far without reducing the losses.
