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.
