Planning Your Trip
There’s more to Frankfurt than airport terminals and trade fairs. Explore beneath the skyscrapers to find cosmopolitan bustle and cultural flair. In all probability you’re going to Frankfurt because you have to attend to business or make a plane connection – but the city has more to offer. From Frankfurt you can connect to any destination in Germany using rail, road or other flights, plus through Air Namibia with its IET (interline Electronic Ticketing) and SPA (Special Prorated Agreement) partners you can fly to any destination in Europe or the world.
To visit South Africa is tantamount to visiting the entire globe in its unequalled beauty. Convince yourself of the culture and natural diversity of this neighbor to Namibia.
