APG Network will also operate a call center and customer care services on behalf of Air Namibia in the two countries.
The partnership follows Air Namibia’s decision to launch the Windhoek-Lagos-Accra route, which will commence on June 29, 2018.
This new route will provide a direct and convenient service connecting Namibia to the two West African countries.
The four times weekly operation (Sunday, Monday, Wednesday & Friday from Windhoek) will provide smooth and convenient connections inbound and outbound to the airline’s regional flights, connecting West Africa via Windhoek to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Luanda, Harare, Lusaka, Vic Falls, Gaborone Walvis Bay and Durban.
Commenting on the new partnership, the Manager for GSA and Offline markets at Air Namibia, Ms Juanita Klassen said,
“We are happy for having established this relationship with the APG Network, as through innovation and utilizing their extensive experience in the field of aviation, and being a key global player in the airline distribution environment, offering outsourced services such as passenger sales and marketing, reservations, Air Namibia is positioned to make its West Africa operations a success.”
