Jens Boyd, Head of Long-Haul at Condor, said yesterday that the new route is an “ideal” destination for the company, and compliments their flight offering in southern Africa.

Maureen Posthuma, Area Manager in Europe for the Namibia Tourism Board, said that the new direct connection puts the “land of wide open spaces” that much closer to German tourists.

She added that “the addition of Windhoek as a destination in the flight plan of the Condor not only has a positive impact on the further development of the tourist product in Namibia – it is also a sign of the growing interest in Namibia as a tourist destination”.

    Air Namibia must think twice before allowing this submit a rejection to the Namibian Government. With a population of only 2.1 million people and s struggling airline fierce competition will jeopardize its only stronghold of the German route which it also competes with Lufthansa. The Airline is prided as National treasure and hope for expansion of the domestic Flight Industry to reach World Recognition, in the Long run…. it has just allowed its own death warrant.
