The Namibia Airports Company says it is ready to welcome tourists back after President Hage Geingob announced that the country will once again be accessible through the Hosea Kutako International Airport from tomorrow.
NAC spokesperson Dan Kamati said that necessary measures have been taken to comply with the Covid-19 state of emergency regulations.
“Mandatory thermal screening at arrival and departure points will take place and social distancing of 1.5 metres will continue to be observed, as well as indicated distance seating,” he said.
Although Kamati did not point out specifically whether airlines such as Qatar Airways, KLM and Ethiopian Airlines will resume their flights to Namibia, he said there had been willingness to do so.
“The NAC has not received any airlines scheduled ahead of the reopening, but they have expressed their willingness to resume flights and we are anticipating [that by] mid-September 2020,” he said.
