It's not airborne in the typical virus vernacular - it might have more ability to spread via droplets or that sort of thing, but if it were truly airborne, we'd know it. Africa would be a hot mess, and the world would see a -lot- more infections. So obviously not your typical airborne virus, no.
And mutation.. sure, could I suppose.. but as about reliable predicting that as a meteorite striking your home. Why worry further about something that probably won't happen. There is enough to worry about with the current strain.

It can travel in small air droplets. Like sneezes and float for a bit, but it's a large virus.
It isn't airborne like the measles are where it hangs around a room infecting people.
If you want to answer the question all you really have to do is look at the isolation of the spread. If it were airborne then it wouldn't take 6 months to kill others or just start arriving in single persons in other countries. It would be worldwide.
