The Hosea Kutako International Airport and Ondangwa Airport have each received a new operating licence to provide services and ensure safety of aircraft and passengers.
Namibia Airports Company Chief Executive Officer, Tamer El-Kallawi says the new annual aerodrome operating licences are valid until the end of July, next year.
El-Kallawi said in a statement, the company continued to pursue strict airport safety and security and conform to the applicable international and local civil aviation regulations.
He explained the company had undertaken major capital investment at Ondangwa Airport in upgrading the passenger terminal building and rehabilitating the runway to the value of 84-million dollars.
El-Kallawi told Nampa that the expansion process would be completed end of this month, ensuring larger aircraft capacity and better safety standards.
He said once completed, the airport would accommodate big aircraft like the Airbus A-319 and the fire and rescue category would be upgraded to a category four C.
El-Kallawi noted that the human capital was prioritised to ensure proper and quicker implementation of projects for safe and secure airport facilities.
