Air Namibia and APG Network have announced a new partnership effective from March 2018.

 

The partnership entails Air Namibia having appointed APG Network as GSSA in Ghana and Nigeria. In accordance with the GSSA agreement entered into, APG Network will provide full sales and marketing services, as well as call center 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, which will commence on 29 June 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.

“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 Juanita Klassen – Manager for GSA and Offline markets at Air Namibia.
