Inflight services

Air Botswana has a reputation for quality service on board its flights.Catering is provided by a company called "Ground Crew" in Johannesburg and passengers have the assurance of tasty food hygienically prepared and well presented.

A wide range of special meals are available by prior arrangement for passengers who have particular dietary needs for health or religious reasons. Meals and snacks include complimentary soft drinks, wines, beers and spirits.

A small selection of duty-free items are available for sale on flights outside the Common Custom Area (currently the service runs between Gaborone and Harare and all domestic routes). Passengers are welcome to buy from the duty-free shop at Sir Seretse Khama Airport in the International Departure Hall if travelling outside the common customs area.

Air Botswana also provides full catering, including cabin crew, on wet-lease charter services.

Cabin Baggage

Due to limited cabin baggage space, passengers are allowed only one small piece of hand baggage not exceeding 7 kg. This is for safety reasons, as the baggage has to fit in the overhead stowage. Any excess hand baggage will be placed in the aircraft hold at the boarding time.


In compliance with international health trends, smoking is strictly prohibited on all Air Botswana flights. Failure to comply could result in prosecution.

Remain seated

Air Botswana regards passenger safety as number one priority. Therefore, passengers are requested to remain seated with their seat belts fastened during flight whether the seat belt signs are on or off.

Portable Electronic Equipment

Passengers are requested not to use electronic equipment while on board the aircraft as this may interfere with the aircraft avionics systems.
