Air Botswana, which operates and maintains a fleet of BAe146 as well as ATR42-500 and ATR72-500 advanced turbo propeller aircraft, reports that it regularly puts itself through its safety paces.

The national airline makes sure that it keeps up to the mark with international safety standards in critical areas of its operations.

One such area is the need to quickly evacuate an aircraft in the event of an emergency, said the company.

The latest such exercise, held in the Air Botswana hangar at Sir Seretse Khama International Airport, included presentations and practical evacuation drills on the ATR turboprop and BAe146 and Avro RJ85 jet aircraft types.

• Meanwhile, the airline also reports the opening of its new Pula Lounge at Sir Seretse Khama International Airport, Gaborone, has also been warmly welcomed. The lounge extends hospitality to Gold and Diamond card holders of the Teemane Club frequent flyer scheme.
