Air Namibia goes all jet

With the planned acquisition of three Embraer ERJ 135 Air Namibia will, for the first time, be an all jet airline when the final delivery is made in June of this year.  The first aircraft has joined the fleet and last week began service life on routes to and from to Windhoek, Maun and Victoria Falls plus domestic sectors.  The Air Namibia fleet will then consist of two Airbus A340s, four Boeing 737-500s and the three Embraer ERJ 135s. 

The 37-seat aircraft replaces 19-passenger Beechcraft 1900D turboprops previously used on all domestic routes within Namibia.

With the majority of shares government-owned, Air Namibia is the national carrier of Namibia and is a niche carrier serving domestic points within Namibia and the immediate regional markets of Angola, Botswana, Ghana, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  The European gateway is Frankfurt. www.airnamibia.com.na
