AIR NAMIBIA buys two A319's

As part of its fleet modernisation programme, national airline, Air Namibia has entered a new chapter in its history by acquiring two brand new Airbus A319 - 100 aircraft

The aircraft, powered by CFM International's CFM56-5B6/3 engines, are coming in to replace the ageing Boeing B737 fleet. With a total seat capacity of 112 seats: 16 Business Class and 96 Economy Class, the aircraft will be used in Air Namibia's regional routes between Windhoek and Johannesburg, Cape Town, Luanda and Accra.

Seating arrangement in business class is a classic 2 by 2 format, with no middle seats, affording business class passengers sufficient comfort, and good value for money. In economy class, seating follows a classic wide-body 3 by 3 configuration.The two will complement two other Airbus A319-100 aircraft already in use since October 2011 .
