Before FlyNamibia, there was FlyWestair, Namibia’s first privately-owned scheduled passenger airline. In November 2021 the airline took the bold leap of a rebrand , and so FlyNamibia was born.

The airline’s parent company, Westair Aviation, has since the beginning, continuously strived to be as malleable, agile and flexible as possible. We have prided ourselves on our ability to adapt quickly under pressure and have made it to the other side of the biggest stress period the aviation industry has ever suffered. And above all we’ve been able to maintain our integrity and the fundamentals of our business while doing it.

At Westair Aviation we are, have always been and will always aim to be The Standard in Aviation in Namibia. Now that role takes on a whole new dimension as we set our sights even higher, dream even bigger and embark on a journey that will not only broaden our own horizons, but hopefully that of the country in which we live, operate, hope and dream. As Namibia’s largest aviation body, we accept our responsibility to grow and develop aviation in Namibia. We accept the responsibility to contribute toward the development of the Namibian economy in a post-COVID environment. How will we do this? By connecting Namibia to the world.

For us at FlyWestair, it used to be about time. Now it’s time for it to be about us. All of us. It’s about you. It’s about Namibia. An entire nation banded together to help grow, enrich and create the Namibia we all wish to see. Connected and together.

It is in this atmosphere of hope and excitement for a future filled with prosperity and possibility that we launch our greatest undertaking yet… FlyNamibia.


Born from an immense passion for aviation and our home country, FlyNamibia aims to be an airline that a nation can be proud of. A carrier that will ensure Namibia’s colours are represented in clear blue skies across the country, the continent, and hopefully one day, the world. With an ethos based on the concept of Ubuntu, which is celebrated across the continent, FlyNamibia aims to be a beacon that connects Namibia as a community with the rest of the world, and helps bring the world to us so that we can showcase how unique and truly special we are as a destination.  

I am because we are.

We are FlyNamibia, and we’re so excited to fly the Namibian colours far, wide and high.
