In line with cost cutting measures, Air Namibia last week took delivery of the first of two new Airbus A330-200 aircrafts in Toulouse, France. The airplane, with 244 seats, has 34 less seats compared to the A340-300, which is being phased out by the national airline. 

The aircraft is the first of two A330s being leased by Air Namibia from US lessor Intrepid. The airline’s A330 features a two-class cabin layout seating 244 passengers which comprises 30 business class seats and 214 economy class seats.  

Air Namibia Managing Director Theo Namases, said that the “high efficiency and low operating costs of the A330 makes it a perfect fit into our fleet. With an aircraft we know to be both reliable and comfortable it will offer the best flight experience to our passengers”, she said at the handing over ceremony in France. 

Namibian ambassador to France, Nangula Frieda Ithete, said that with the new acquisition, Air Namibia would be able to cut costs drastically. She said that Air Namibia will realise savings of up to N$510 million over 60 months on operating costs alone, which translates to N$8.5 million a month.
