Travellers to Namibia will, from the beginning of August, find it simpler to get exploring in the dunes, deserts and beaches of the beautiful Southern African nation.
From 30 July 2018, in response to market requests, Airlink will increase capacity on its Johannesburg to Walvis Bay service offerings with a bigger plane.
Introducing one of their newly acquired 74-seater Embraer 170 E-Jet to the route, Airlink will provide customers with enhanced comfort for their travels thanks to a generous seat pitch and six expansive business class seats.
Featuring a cabin layout with two plus two abreast seating, significant overhead bin space and large, eye-level windows that allow plenty of natural light into the cabin, the E-Jet carrying travellers to Namibia will help ensure their holiday starts off smoothly. All passengers will have an option between window and aisle.
The news comes as part of a gradual trend that has seen the aviation industry taking to the skies and making Namibia a destination of first choice for many travellers around the world. In 2017 Eurowings launched a new route from Hosea Kutako International Airport in Namibia’s capital city Windhoek to Cologne Bonn Airport, western Germany.
Prior to that development, Turkish Airlines and Air Namibia started a codeshare agreement that sought to expand the travel opportunities for the passengers of the airlines.
