AIR BOTSWANA OPERATION NOT PARTISAN
Air Botswana wishes to distance itself from the discussions doing the rounds on social media regarding the non-operation of flights to Maun during the weekend of 17-19 May 2019 as being politically motivated.
The airline considers this inappropriate and damaging to its image and reputation. The decision to rationalize the schedule of the airline is purely based on its current resource and capacity constraints. This situation, the objective of which is to operate a lean and efficient operation, is closely monitored with a view to availing extra capacity to our passengers as soon as resources become available. It is in the interest of the airline to fully revert to its schedule, as soon as it is practical to do so sustainably.
We wish to commit to our valuable passengers that as soon as the Embraer E170 is integrated into service, Air Botswana will fully resume its operation and restore its schedule integrity.
Air Botswana has a Board of Directors and its decisions are purely commercial and based on sound Corporate Governance practices and not on partisan politics.
