Maun Airport is an international airport serving the town of Maun in the northern part of Botswana . It is an important part of the local infrastructure and serves as the main touristic gateway to the Okavango Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve. Additional popular tourist destinations like Chobe National Park or the Makgadikgadi Pans are within driving distance. Maun Airport is located about 5 km (3 miles) from the town center and is accessible by shuttle bus or taxi. Many tour operators offer chartered sightseeing flights over the Okavango Delta and vicinity. There are only a few scheduled flights daily to destinations in Botswana, South Africa and Namibia. There are also a number of chartered flights to Botswanan destinations such as the Makgadikgadi Pans, one of the largest seasonal wetlands in Africa.(C.Michael Hogan. 2008)

The airport has gone under recent expansion. A new Runway is in the process of being built. The terminal is small and is outdated. Plans for anther new terminal is also in the process of being built.
