FlyAfrica Namibian partner pulls out of deal

Advert Travel Gazette

TRAVEL GAZETTE – Nomad Aviation, the Namibian company that partnered the low-cost airline FlyAfrica, on Monday said it had suspended the partnership.

The company’s Windhoek offices were closed Monday.

A note stuck on the door read: “This office is temporarily closed. For All FlyAfrica refund applications, kindly contact the FlyAfrica call centre.”

In a statement, the company said all funds were received by FlyAfrica and no ticket sales were received by Nomad Aviation.

The company issued a notice Friday notifying its clients that they were not selling tickets any more.

The suspension of the partnership comes after the Directorate of Civil Aviation (DCA) of Namibia barred the airline from operating in November this year.

According to the DCA, Nomad Aviation was not supposed to trade as FlyAfrica Namibia until after revaluation and issuance of approval.

FlyAfrica Namibia was supposed to ply the Windhoek-Cape Town and Windhoek-Johannesburg routes.
