Air Namibia has announced that it will operate flights between Ondangwa and Walvis Bay from the 4th of December 2020 to the 10th of January 2021.

The flights according to the airline will be operated on Fridays and Sundays and serviced by Air Namibia’s Embraer Jet (ERJ) aircraft with 37 seating capacity, with travel time between the north and the coast expected to be 60 minutes.

“This development opens new travel possibilities and opportunities, as the national airline continues to respond positively to the increasing demand of flying by air. This much-needed service will give our passengers a better alternative travel option, especially with the fast-approaching festive season which normally leaves thousands of people without efficient mode of transportation between coastal towns and the northern part of Namibia. Moreover, this route will reduce road congestion and improve mobility within the country,” Spokesperson Twaku Kayofa said.

This comes as the airline increases its flight frequencies between Eros – Ondangwa from 2 to 3 daily flights on Friday and Sunday.

“Passengers who wish to travel between Windhoek and Walvis Bay would be able to do so via Ondangwa, seamless connection,” he said.
