The Namibia Airports Company has proudly advised that the Walvis Bay airport has received its Aerodrome licence.

Says CEO Tamer El-Kallawi: “An inspection was conducted at the Walvis Bay airport from the 13th to the 17th of July 2015 and corrective actions were implemented and evidence submitted end of November that all findings have been addressed and were found acceptable. We were then handed our licence on 30 November 2015.”

He added that NAC would continue to fulfil its duties and obligations at the airport to ensure that the licence would remain valid at all times.

The continuous improvement of safety and security of airport operations is one of the six strategic priority areas as outlined in the NAC’s Strategic Plan 2014-2017 and similar activities are on-going for the airports of Eros and Ondangwa by the end of 2015 for successful renewal of their operational licences.

Once completed, the current licensing process will enhance the level of compliance of NAC’s airports to national and international safety and security requirements, ultimately contributing to Namibia fulfilling its commitment to license all international airports by December 2015 as per the Declaration adopted by all African States in Abuja (Nigeria) in July 2012.
