WINDHOEK, 01 APR (NAMPA) – Air Namibia has temporally reduced its flights operating between Windhoek and Johannesburg, South Africa from three flights per day to two flights per day as of Friday this week until 01 July 2016.
In a statement issued on Friday, Air Namibia’s Manager for Corporate Communications Paul Nakawa said the main reason for the temporary reduction of flights is for the regulator, the Directorate of Civil Aviation in the Ministry of Works and Transport, to “fix logistical issues” within the next three months.
He could not elaborate.
Nakawa said flight number SW727 that was scheduled to depart from Windhoek at 13h55 and flight SW728 expected to depart from Johannesburg to Windhoek at 18h20 will be removed from the schedule as from Friday.
He said passengers booked on the affected flights will be re-routed and accommodated on the two remaining flights operating daily.
These flights are Windhoek to Johannesburg departing at 08h30; Windhoek to Johannesburg departing at 17h35; Johannesburg to Windhoek departing at 12h00; and Johannesburg to Windhoek departing at 06h40.
“We herewith call on all affected passengers who have not made alternative arrangements yet to please contact the nearest Air Namibia office or to contract their travel agents,” Nakawa said.
The spokesperson reminded all Air Namibia customers that the schedule will resume again on 02 July 2016.
