Air Namibia

Sun Oct 24, 1999 1:46 pm

Air Namibia took delivery of their first 747-400C. Its a beautifull aircraft. I wish though they painted it with the old livery with the yellow sheet line. Well I think its a good aircraft for them. It will be primarily used to flights to Europe. What do you guys think about this airline?

They'll use on FRA and London (I don't know if it's LHR or Gatwick)

This sure is a carrier with a bright future. Not to long ago Airways or Airliners had a nice spread on them. The 747-400 is named "Welwitschia" it is replacing a 747SP and will operate into London's Heathrow airport and Germany's Franfurt. It will be sad to see the SP go. I photographed it landing at Heathrow when I was there.

I also like Air Namibia and especially their SP (I flew on it in 1995, and I saw it some weeks ago in Frankfurt).
To KL808: You are right with the colours. The old tail logo was better than the new painting with the flag on it.

I think WDH isn't a strong market, is it ?
AFAIK, only LH operates to that country as a foreign carrier. AF operated some flights via JNB in the early 1990's but stopped since.
