The Namibian flag-carrier Air Namibia and Lufthansa Technik AG are continuing their cooperation. The technical support provided since the airline began operating in 2006 is now being continued through a Total Technical Support TTS contract valid through 2018. As part of its comprehensive supply of the airline's current long-haul fleet of two factory new Airbus A330s, Lufthansa Technik has been contracted to provide services for the components, engineering and line maintenance. In addition, Lufthansa Technik will take over the complex support of the customer's lease returns for the former A340 fleet.
"The integrated technical support we receive from Lufthansa Technik allows us to focus optimally on flight operations," emphasized Rene Gsponer, Chief Operating Officer Air Namibia. "We're very pleased to continue to support the growth of this successful airline so extensively," said Claus Peters, Sales Executive Africa and Middle East. Air Namibia offers international and domestic service to destinations in southern Africa as well as daily connections to Germany. Currently the fleet consists of ten aircraft.
