Increased economic activity in the South boosts FlyNamibia

FlyNamibia says it is increasing frequencies to Oranjemund from three to five flights per week supported by Shell Namibia, Debmarine Namibia, and Westair.

The airline’s decision to increase frequencies is aimed at providing more convenience to passengers travelling to and from Oranjemund.

"We are delighted to increase our frequencies to Oranjemund. Support from Shell Namibia, Debmarine Namibia, and Westair will allow us to offer our passengers a more regular service and make it easier for them to plan their journeys. Operating a more regular service also maximises the usage of flights thereby reducing the environmental impact,” FlyNamibia's Managing Director Andre Compion said on Monday. 

The airline, however, warned of potential delays due to factors, such as the weather conditions or crew passenger transportation to and from offshore rigs.

“In such cases, we want to assure our passengers that our team will keep them updated on any potential delays or deviations in flight schedules, and we will do everything in our power to minimise any inconvenience caused.”

Shell is currently carrying out an appraisal on the commercial viability of its oil find off the coast of Namibia, while Debmarine Namibia uses Oranjemund as a base for its diamond marine mining operations.

FlyNamibia currently operates domestic routes from Eros Airport in Windhoek to Ondangwa, Walvis Bay, Rundu, Katima Mulilo and Oranjemund, as well as a regional route between Hosea Kutako International Airport and Cape Town International.
