European airline adds Namibia to network
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will expand its scheduled services in Africa to include Windhoek, Namibia, from October 30.
The schedule for its three existing weekly flights to Luanda, Angola, will be adapted to make it possible to fly on to Windhoek and back after a short stopover.
The flights will use a 243-seat Airbus 330-200. Flight KL0575 will depart Amsterdam on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 22h45 and arrive in Luanda at 07h30 next day. At 08h45 it will continue on to Windhoek, arriving at 12h15. The return flight, KL0576, will depart Windhoek on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Mondays at 17h40 and arrive in Luanda at 19h15. From there the flight will depart at 20h40 and arrive in Amsterdam the next day at 05h20.
“Based on our strong position in Europe, you can see that we regularly find opportunities to strengthen our international position,” said Pieter Elbers, KLM CEO.
