Air Namibia and APG Network have entered into a partnership effective March 2018 which entails Air Namibia having appointed APG Network as GSSA in Ghana and Nigeria will provide full sales and marketing services, as well as call centre and customer care services on behalf of Air Namibia in the two countries.
The appointment follows Air Namibia’s decision to launch the Windhoek-Lagos-Accra route beginning June 29 2018 which will provide a direct route between Namibia and 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.
“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”, said Ms Juanita Klassen – Manager for GSA and Offline markets at Air Namibia.
