Flyafrica.com expands into Namibia

901

Flyafrica.com, Africa’s newest low-cost airline, has announced Namibia as its latest destination. Namibia joins Zimbabwe on the flyafrica.com route network.

Fares start at around $80 for flights between Windhoek and Johannesburg, and flyafrica.com will operate daily flights on this route from 2 February 2015.

Sales via flyafrica.com have just commenced and travel agency sales will commence shortly. Namibia flyafrica will operate scheduled regional flights from Namibia to South Africa, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. Windhoek to Johannesburg is the first route to be announced, with others to follow shortly.

The Namibian operation is the second airline launched by the flyafrica.com group and is a joint venture between Nomad Aviation, a Namibia-based airline, and Flyafrica Ltd, a Mauritius-based private equity aviation investment group.

“Namibia flyafrica is part of our roll-out plan to introduce multiple airlines across Africa operating under the flyafrica.com brand,” said Adrian Hamilton-Manns, Group CEO of flyafrica.com. Flyafrica.com has committed to revolutionising air travel in Africa. As part of this commitment, the airline does not apply a fuel surcharge – which can more than double the cost of the fare.
