Stakeholders in the transport sector have joined hands to revive the travel and tourism industry to alleviate connectivity challenges for visitors to Namibia.

Led by the Namibia Airports Company (NAC), the stakeholders signed a memorandum of understanding on Tuesday. They pledged to collaborate efforts to attract more airlines to the country and connect it to foreign markets.  

In 2022, stakeholders from the transport sector convened a forum to discuss ways to revitalise travel and tourism, which had been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Without a national airline, those wishing to travel to Namibia found it difficult to connect to other countries before reaching their destination, which often created complications. At the forum, stakeholders resolved to establish the Air Connect platform.

The companies include Namibia Airports Company (NCA), the City of Windhoek, Namibia Tourism Board, Gondwana Collection Namibia, the Walvis Bay Corridor Group, the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the Namibia Investment Promotion and Development Board.
