Namibia’s private airline, FlyNamibia, has been accepted as a new member of the International Air Transport Association (Iata).
This, according to the company’s spokesperson, Elzanne McCulloch, signifies a promising future for the airline industry in Namibia and beyond.
Iata, with its mission to represent, lead, and serve the global airline industry, stands as the collective voice of approximately 300 airlines hailing from more than 120 countries worldwide.
The core vision that propels Iata’s actions is the determination to collaboratively shape the future growth of an aviation sector which is both safe and secure, while ensuring sustainability.
Through this endeavour, Iata aims to create an air transport industry that not only connects nations, but also enriches the global community, McCulloch says.
By aligning with Iata’s principles and collaborating with a global network of industry leaders, FlyNamibia is expected to elevate its operations, offer enhanced services, and contribute to the growth and sustainability of air travel in Namibia.
“Together, with FlyNamibia as an Iata member, we are confident that we can soar to new heights and create a brighter, more connected, and sustainable future for air travel,” the company says.
FlyNamibia currently operates several domestic routes from Eros Airport in Windhoek to Ondangwa, Rundu, Katima Mulilo, Lüderitz and Oranjemund, as well as a regional route between Hosea Kutako International Airport and Cape Town International.
