President believes Doha-Gaborone direct flights will boost up Botswana’s tourism

Published on : Wednesday, August 14, 2019

When Qatar Airways introduces direct Doha-Gaborone flights in October, the tourism sector of Botswana will get a major boost up, said Botswanan President Mokgweetsi Masisi on Monday.

 

With the flights, there are high chances that “our tourism sector will surpass the achievement attained last year by at least 1.5 percent because it will be easy to travel for tourists,” Masisi said while attending a political rally of the ruling Botswana Democratic Party at the Bobonong village, 380 kms northeast of Gaborone.

 

In 2018, the tourism sector of Botswana expanded by 3.4 percent. It exceeded sub-Saharan African average by 3.3 percent, and inserted at least 2.7 billion U.S. dollars into its economy, as per a report by the World Travel & Tourism Council, a London-based forum for the industry.

 

On Oct. 27th, the three-times-a-week flights were introduced and operated by an Airbus A350-900 aircraft with 36 seats in business class and 247 seats in economy class, Masisi informed the rally before the general election of Botswana scheduled for October.

 

Botswana, a landlocked and semi-arid country based in the center of southern Africa, houses different wildlife and few respected conservation programs in the world, according to the United Nations Development Programme.
