Air Botswana

Botswana’s national airliner has reduced domestic flight fares by 25 percent, as part of the efforts to boost local tourism.

“The reduced fees were introduced to encourage local travel and promote local tourism,” said Air Botswana Marketing Manager Tebogo Zebe on Monday.

She said prices that have been reduced for the following routes Gaborone to Kasane, Maun to Kasane, Francistown to Gaborone, and Gaborone to Cape Town in the neighboring South Africa.

Last week, the national airliner signed an express loan partnership with a local financial service company Botswana Savings Bank to fund the nations traveling appetite.

The deal allows qualifying citizens to purchase Air Botswana tickets at discounted prices when using the loan scheme.

“With flexible payment terms, the express loan promotes local tourism by Batswana in Botswana,” said Zebe.

Meanwhile, the government has already announced intentions to elevate the recognition of tourism as a priority growth sector by aggressively developing and promoting it so that it contributes more to the country’s GDP.

Statistics indications are that the tourism sector directly contributes 4.9 percent to GDP. Enditem
