Start Outlook and go to 'File' > 'Open' > 'Import'.
A Wizard will open to guide you through the process. Choose 'Import from another program or file' and click 'Next'.

Click the 'Browse...' button and select the file you want to import. Then choose how you want to handle duplicates and click 'Next'.
Select 'Calendar' for the destination folder and click 'Next'.
