Air Namibia (Windhoek) is making changes. The government of the Republic of Namibia, Air Namibia’s sole shareholder, has decided to recapitalize the airline, with an equity injection in the form of two brand new Airbus A319-100 aircraft (total now four) for use on regional routes. New A319 services from Windhoek to Gaborone (three times a week) and Harare (four times a week) will commence on May 15.
The airline is also adding two Airbus A330-200s to replace the current two A340-300s which are operated on the valuable Windhoek-Frankfurt route. The first of the A330-200 aircraft is expected to enter the fleet in October 2013 and the second one is expected to enter the fleet in November 2013. These aircraft will offer 30 business class seats with full flat beds and personalized video and audio inflight entertainment, and 214 economy class seats also fitted with personalized audio/video inflight entertainment system.
However the carrier is expected to drop the Windhoek-Accra route on April 11 per Airline Route.
