FlyNamibia (WV, Windhoek Eros) has secured the renewal of its scheduled air transport service licence from the Transportation Commission of Namibia (TCN) following a legal battle in the country's High Court to reverse an initial rejection.

"This development allows us to continue our operations without interruption, including the launch of our new routes to Victoria Falls [Zimbabwe] and Maun [Botswana]," the privately-owned airline said in a statement.

On March 18, the High Court in Windhoek ordered the TCN to reconsider FlyNamibia's application for the renewal of the licence. The court found that the commission had misinterpreted the country's Air Services Act and "did not apply its mind to the legislative provisions at all" when it argued that it lacked the authority to consider the airline's belated application. The airline had missed the renewal deadline by about eight months due to an oversight.

FlyNamibia opened a new regional route between Windhoek International and Victoria Falls on April 4. It also operates between Windhoek and Cape Town International in neighbouring South Africa, and codeshares between Cape Town and Walvis Bay with its minority shareholder Airlink (South Africa) (4Z, Johannesburg O.R. Tambo). Domestic routes from Windhoek Eros include Ondangwa, Caprivi, Luderitz, and Oranjemund.
