Air Namibia Buys Embraer ERJ 135s

Namibian flag carrier upgrading its fleet

Jan 27, 2011

Air Namibia is upgrading its fleet with new aircraft for its domestic and regional networks. It currently operates four Beechcraft 1900Ds, which will be replaced by three Embraer ERJ 135s.

The delivery dates are scattered, with the first of the new aircraft in service by Feb. 14, the second April 14, and the third in June. Seat capacity will increase from 19 seats to 37 on the ERJ 135s and will help to fill demand to popular destinations like Ondangwa, Maun and Victoria Falls.

Air Namibia is confident the upgraded fleet will enhance its domestic and regional product and improve the travel experience of its customers, who will benefit from an increased luggage allowance. Passengers will now be entitled to a baggage allowance of 20 kilos in economy and 30 in business class. This is consistent with that of the Air Namibia long-haul flight. The GDS systems have already been changed to reflect these changes.
