1 min read

Air Namibia has confirmed that there has been no official decision taken by the government or the board to close the national carrier, despite the company being declared insolvent.

Air Namibia’s Interim CEO Xavier Masule said in a statement that there is also no pending application for the liquidation of Air Namibia by end of September 2019 as reported in the media.

“Air Namibia shall continue to fly as per the published schedule for the foreseeable future,” he said.

According to Masule, the national airline is receiving assistance from its shareholders as per the budgetary provision and allocation as announced at the beginning of the current financial year.

“Air Namibia was established with the mandate of providing air transport services, to promote tourism and encourage business investment in Namibia. The airline has been meeting this objective optimally,” he added.
