Mobile Telecommunication Company (MTC) and the Tour and Safari Association of Namibia (TASA) have joined forces to explore a strategic collaboration aimed at bringing innovative solutions to the travel and tourism sector.

Due to the constant demand for innovation, the two organizations are working together to harness their resources for an improved user experience and sustainable tourism growth.

Elton Katangolo, MTC’s Acting Chief Commercial Officer, pointed out the importance of the tourism sector to Namibia’s economy while asserting MTC’s commitment to incubate and implement digital service transformation.

“Smart partnership is engraved in our makeup, and it excites me to essentially explore the opportunity to unite efforts between MTC and TASA, with the intent to design and offer digital and innovative solutions aimed at providing convenience for our consumers (tourists) who find themselves travelling to Namibia. We are, therefore, pleased with our engagement with TASA, and we are confident that together we will provide the desired value,” he said.

Katangolo said that these service offerings are specifically tailored to cost-effectively enhance tourists’ experience with efficiency and flexibility, serving as an essential travel companion for seamless communication during the journey.

“As you explore Namibia, we invite you to feel at home with MTC Leisure and MTC Premium. Whether you are exploring the vibrant cities, scenic landscapes, or cultural wonders of Namibia, this bundle ensures you stay connected, entertained, and informed throughout your journey,” Katangolo said.

In addition, he reiterated that with its extensive mobile network covering 97 percent of Namibia’s population, MTC plays a dominant role in the country’s telecommunications market and is positioned as the digital driver of change.

Meanwhile, Mureal Van Rooyen, a representative of TASA, expressed optimism about the collaboration, stressing that MTC plays a pivotal role in connecting people throughout the country, which will benefit the tourism industry.

“We are excited about our initial engagement with MTC as we examine the dynamics and viable avenues of creating and improving value for our members. Furthermore, we believe that through smart partnership, we can achieve outcomes for the benefit of the tourism industry,” he said.

In parallel with this strategic collaboration, MTC has introduced enhanced connectivity solutions for tourists visiting Namibia.

These offerings, known as the Leisure and Premium Tourist packages, are exclusively available at the MTC outlet at Hosea Kutako International Airport.

The Leisure package offers affordable connectivity for visitors staying less than 30 days, while the Premium package provides up to 30 days of connectivity.

Other packages include data, free voice minutes, and SMS messages to ensure that travellers can stay connected with their loved ones throughout their journey.
