Eros is a busy hub of general aviation and one of the busiest airports in the SADC region. It is the host to commercial, private, and scheduled traffic ranging from high performance jet aircraft to Cessna 152 trainers. The majority of traffic comes from the general aviation charter market, consisting mainly of the Cessna 210 aircraft, which is the most commonly used aircraft for charter and fly-in safaris in Namibia. The airport handles approximately 150 to 200 movements per day (around 50,000 per year). In 2004, the airport served 141,605 passengers.

Eros is an alternate for Windhoek International Airport in VMC conditions. The largest passenger aircraft to land at Eros is the Boeing 737 on a diversion from Windhoek International due to strong crosswinds and windshear.

In January 2008, a Cessna 210 crashed after take off killing the pilot and all 6 tourists on board. The accident was ruled to be caused by pilot error, according to the Directorate of Aircraft Accident Investigations.
