North to Coast air route commences
Air Namibia celebrated a great milestone on Tuesday, as the national airline connected the north with the coast.
In less than 60 mins, Air Namibia carried 25 ecstatic passengers from Ondangwa to Walvisbay. At 11H36, Air Namibia’s ERJ 135 (with a 37 seating capacity) departed from Ondangwa and arrived at 12H29 in Walvis Bay.
Effective Tuesday, Air Namibia will fly directly from Ondangwa to Walvis Bay, three times a week on: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays return.
One of the passengers, Damian Egumbo, CEO of Ongwediva Town Council welcomed the new route with joy. He noted that it will minimise traveling time between the north and coast and equally reduce pressure on the road, especially with the upcoming festive season. He further commended Air Namibia and Namibia Airports Company (NAC) for this achievement.
