Westair Aviation rebranded its scheduled passenger airline to FlyNamibia on 1 November. The event was attended by industry partners and officiated by the Vice President, Nangolo Mbumba.

At the event, chairman of Westair Aviation Group Wolfgang Grellmann noted that: “At Westair Aviation, we have always been and will always aim to set the standard for aviation in Namibia. Now, that role takes on a whole new dimension as we set our sights even higher, dream even bigger and embark on a journey that will not only broaden our own horizons, but hopefully that of the country in which we live, operate, hope and dream. As Namibia’s largest aviation organisation, we accept our responsibility to grow and develop aviation in Namibia. We also acknowledge and accept the responsibility to contribute toward the development of the Namibian economy. This is especially important in a post-Covid environment. Our contribution is to enable these connections for business, for families, for government and most crucially for the travel and tourism sector”.

FlyNamibia will continue operating regional and international routes as FlyWestair, with new destinations on the horizon.

These include the regional routes between Eros Airport Windhoek and Ondangwa, Rundu and Katima Mulilo, as well as the international route between Hosea Kutako International Airport and Cape Town International.

Meanwhile, Westair Aviation was launched under its new brand of a Safari schedule.

This schedule connects Namibia to major tourist destinations in southern Africa.

  Starting in April of 2022, Westair Aviation will, under its new brand of FlyNamibia, operate a daily schedule between Windhoek, Sossusvlei, Swakopmund and Etosha.

FlyNamibia will also operate daily flights between Katima Mulilo and Victoria Falls.

Taking on the responsibility to contribute towards the development of the Namibian aviation sector, Westair Aviation launched a bursary scheme that will train aviation professionals for the future.

This program is expected to provide students with exposure to all aspects of the industry whilst receiving specialised training to become aircraft engineers, aircrew and ground support personnel.

“Our vision is that if we grow our skills base of Namibian aviation professionals this will result in Namibia becoming completely self-sufficient in terms of providing specialised aviation services,” said Grellmann.
