Namibia's flag carrier Air Namibia has increased the number of flights to Frankfurt in Germany from 6 weekly flights to a daily service. Since 25 March 2012 the airline is operating the new service on Tuesdays from Windhoek and on Wednesdays from the third busiest airport in Europe, Frankfurt, on board an Airbus A340-300.
Air Namibia is operating scheduled domestic, regional, and international flights (passenger and cargo) under the IATA airline designator "SW". The airline's international hub is Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport, with a domestic hub at the smaller Windhoek Eros Airport. The carrier is wholly owned by the Namibian government.
