On Friday, January 20, the President of Botswana Mokgweetsi Masisi officially opened the upgraded facility. The upgrades include a runway extension to 3.7km and modernisation of the terminal building.

The success of this upgraded airport is reflected in the fact that in 2021, the airport recorded a total of 116 345 passengers and the number increased to 200 929 between January and October 2022.

‘Maun International Airport is uniquely situated in the Okavango Delta. Our guests find the short 30 to 45 minute hop, in a light aircraft, to their lodge absolutely thrilling. The appeal is that the aircraft fly low over the delta, a magical game viewing experience!’
