New routes for Air Namibia

National flag carrier, Air Namibia is in talks with the Angolan and Kenyan authorities to introduce direct routes between the two countries, a move aimed at increasing the parastatal’s revenue. Namibia’s small local market means the company is forced to explore other opportunities to bring in extra profit for the company.

Air Namibia has already secured new routes starting from end of March 2015: between Walvis Bay and as well as Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Air Namibia expects the deal to be to be in place by the end of the year in November.

Meanwhile, Air Namibia is yet to implement its turnaround strategy, due to the limited local market.
