Air Namibia on Monday extended the suspension of its domestic flights following the extension of stage three level of restrictions across the 14 regions, by President Hage Geingob on Friday.
Stage three level of restrictions was extended for 14 days to curb the further spread of COVID-19.
A media statement issued by the airline on Monday said the suspension will be in place until such a time when local travel will be allowed, adding that it will, however, be on standby.
The suspension of regional and international flights has also been extended until further notice, depending on market demand and reopening of international borders of countries where the airline operates to.
“As an active stakeholder in the tourism industry, Air Namibia will continue to participate in the tourism revival initiative,” the statement said.
It further highlighted that although scheduled regional and international flight operations will resume later, the national airline as an essential service provider will remain available to offer charter flights worldwide.
Air Namibia’s interim chief executive officer Theo Mberirua, as quoted by the statement, said once travel restrictions are lifted, passengers will still enjoy fast, safe, reliable and convenient travel by air.
“We have taken practical measures aligned to national COVID-19 measures, to ensure maximum safety and protection for our passengers, employees and other stakeholders,” he concluded.
