Air Namibia (SW, Windhoek Int'l) has confirmed it will resume scheduled passenger flights to West Africa early next year.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, August 22, the carrier said its Windhoek Int'l-Lagos (Nigeria)-Accra (Ghana) return service would operate 4x weekly effective March 25, 2018. It has been granted 5th Freedom traffic rights for the Ghana-Nigeria vv. sectors of the flight which will operate onboard A319-100 equipment.

Air Namibia operated the route from 2009 until 2013 when poor load factors forced it to withdraw.

At present, the state-owned carrier runs scheduled passenger flights throughout Namibia as well as to South Africa, Angola, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Botswana regionally. Frankfurt Int'l, Germany, is its only longhaul service.
