Interesting

Can the apron handle an aircraft the size of what I would imagine would be a A330-200?

Runway length is no problem.

To answer my own question it looks like it will be no issue at all

See below link to a 777 visiting

Eurowings has been granted 5th-freedom rights for the tag-on service between Windhoek and Victoria Falls which starts this week. Zimbabwe seems to allow this easily, while Namibia now seems more likely to do this as well, since Air Namibia is no more.

Will be interesting to see if they apply for this as well between WDH and MQP and whether it would easily be granted.

Has this been suspended again?

Doesn't look like it is scheduled over the next week again...only available later in December again.

Just a little phone pic to add to the thread.

I was working at KMIA this specific day and it was chaos!! But nice to see "chaos" in these uncertain times...

This was the 28th of December.
