Two A319s Order from Air Namibia

Air NamibiaWindhoek-based Air Namibia (SW) has ordered two Airbus A319 aircraft. The aircraft, which will seat 112 passengers in a two-class layout and replace two Boeing 737-500s, will operate on the airline’s regional routes from Windhoek to other major African cities, according to Airbus.

SW operates two leased A319s on regional routes and two A340-300 aircraft on its international route between Windhoek to Frankfurt, Airbus said.

“Our in-service experience with Airbus aircraft has confirmed that the A319 is the ideal aircraft for Air Namibia’s regional routes,” said Air Namibia acting CEO Theo Namases. “The efficiency of our new aircraft, together with their commonality with our existing fleet will provide a strong basis for our continued growth and contribution to the Namibian tourist industry.”

Air Namibia, headquartered in Windhoek, is the national airline of Namibia and is a member of both the International Air Transport Association and the African Airlines Association.
