Ongoing growth in the Lüderitz energy market has necessitated the expansion of airline services for daily travel between Windhoek and Namibia’s secondary port.

Since the service was introduced by FlyNamibia last July, about 5,000 passengers have flown between Windhoek and Lüderitz.

French multinational oil giant, TotalEnergies was instrumental in implementing the service.

FlyNamibia managing director Andre Compion said: “Our enduring partnership with TotalEnergies enables us to continuously adapt and offer the best service to our customers.”

According to Compion, the new service would not have been possible without TotalEnergies, who was the driving force behind unlocking access to the southwest of Namibia.

He said that adding capacity to the daily express service had also enabled FlyNamibia to adopt dynamic pricing.

Demand for flights departing from Lüderitz has also necessitated the opening of an office for FlyNamibia at the Waterfront development.

TotalEnergies’ country chairperson Laurent Roché said he was confident that expansion developments were geared towards maintaining route sustainability, making it self-sufficient and ensuring affordable access to the Lüderitz community.

Apart from domestic services to Ondangwa, Katima Mulilo and Oranjemund, FlyNamibia also services routes from the Hosea Kutako International Airport and Walvis Bay International Airport to Cape Town International and regular flights from Windhoek to Livingstone in Zambia.

Compion indicated that FlyNamibia plans to launch another international service to Maun in Botswana in July.
