On the sidelines of the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the route, the acting Managing Director of Namibia’s national flag carrier Mandi Samson said, “Air Namibia flights to and from Angola contribute to the economic development of the two countries in terms of employment creation, tourism and trade.”
More than 100,000 passengers used the Namibia-Angola service which is shared with Angolan airline Taag Angola, every year.
“We have Angolans going to Namibia to buy goods and vice-versa,” she said,
Despite the current economic challenges in Angola, the airline remained committed to servicing the route.
“We are here to serve the community and we do plough back whatever we get out of it,” Samson said.
Air Namibia’s Country Manager in Angola, Marisa de Almeida, said Angolans appreciated the airline’s services and would continue to support the airline.
