The Namibia Airports Company (NAC) launched the Air Connect Namibia project on Tuesday in a bid to boost tourism, trade, and foreign investment.

During the launch in Windhoek, Bisey /Uirab, the NAC’s chief executive, said the project aims to significantly increase direct air access to Namibia from around the world, with an initial focus on Hosea Kutako International Airport.

“The Air Connect Namibia project aligns perfectly with the NAC’s mission to enhance connectivity to Namibia,” he said.

/Uirab said the move seeks to improve the country’s overall competitiveness by attracting foreign direct investment and stimulating economic growth.

“By establishing new international routes while retaining existing partnerships, Air Connect Namibia will create a stronger tourism and business environment for Namibia.”

The Air Connect Namibia project stems directly from the Namibia Aviation and Connectivity Forum held in 2022.

The forum brought stakeholders together to reimagine the aviation sector’s role in propelling national growth, and air service development was identified as a key factor in achieving this vision.
