Most travelers arrive at Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport lies 45 kilometres north-east of Windhoek. However there are only a few flights per week from Europe (London or Frankfurt) and the United States; these flights fill up quickly and thus, one should book far in advance. Another popular route into Namibia is to first fly into South Africa and then go to Windhoek either by place or bus from Cape Town. If one is taking the bus, they should be ready for delays since the roads can be slightly unpredictable. Also, travelers should be sure they are in a safe, modern tour bus company to prevent an uncomfortable ride.


The second airport, the Eros Airport, which is used for national flights, lies in town. Air Namibia flies regularly, mostly daily, from Windhoek to Keetmanshoop, Walvis Bay, Katima Mulilo, Victoria Falls, Johannesburg and Cape Town. Since Windhoek is also conveniently located in the center of Namibia, it is a great point to begin travel throughout this African country and to surrounding African countries.

From the airport, there are usually many cabs ready to transport visitors into the city. Also, at the international airport, one can purchase a rent-a-car.

There is a currency exchange counter and one ATM machine, located landside, in the airport building, while numerous banks are to be found in town.

Airside, there is a duty free shop and several shops selling African art &  jewellery. The departure lounge is quite small, with only a handful of gates being used for departures.
