WINDHOEK, 26 FEB (NAMPA) - Air Namibia will next month expand its operations in order to provide required air transport within and Namibia and abroad.
In a statement issued on Thursday, the national airline indicated that in line with anticipated traffic growth in some markets it will expand its operations effective from 29 March this year.
The popular Eros-Ondangwa route will increase from two to three flights per day on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays.
This route will have only one flight on Sundays, the statement noted.
Air Namibia has also re-launched direct flights and non-stop flights between Walvis Bay and Johannesburg in South Africa (SA), as well as between Walvis Bay and Cape Town (SA) on a daily basis.
“This will support economic activities and growth of the Walvis Bay economy,” it explained.
There will also be an increased number of flights between Windhoek and Johannesburg – from two to three flights every day of the week.
All flights will be operated using Airbus A319s.
“Flights between Windhoek and Rundu, as well as between Windhoek and Katima Mulilo will be moved from Eros Airport to operate from the Hosea Kutako International Airport. This will assist in minimising aircraft positioning costs and will increase aircraft availability on scheduled commercial flights,” it stated.
