Air Namibia to fly daily to Luanda


Air Namibia will increase the frequency of its flights between Windhoek, Namibia, and Luanda, Angola, to meet the rising demand for seats on this route.

From 6 August, the national air carrier will introduce one additional flight per week on the route – on Tuesdays – to bring to seven the total number of flights operated by Air Namibia between Windhoek and Luanda.

The additional flight will be operated using the Airbus A319-100 fleet, and will operate at the same flight timings as the current six flights.

The plane will depart Windhoek at 08h50 and land in Luanda at 11h15; the return flight will leave Luanda at 12h15 and arrive in Windhoek at 14h35.

The airline launched its service between Luanda and Windhoek in May 1991, with a frequency of one flight a week on Sundays. The operation was interrupted and then halted during 1992 as a result of the civil war in Angola, and resumed in 1995.

Since then the Luanda route has seen a steady growth in passenger numbers and as a result an increase in the frequency of flights.
