FlyNamibia partners with the Namibia Football Association (NFA) as official air travel partner.

 The announcement was made on Tuesday, 20 September, at Eros Airport, where both parties confirmed their commitment to furthering Namibia’s international sporting aspirations.

As the country’s first private passenger airline, FlyNamibia is dedicated to supporting Namibia’s sporting teams and heroes. The partnership with the NFA is set to run for one year, and the airline hopes to extend its support to the country’s football development and the future of the sport in Namibia.

FlyNamibia’s Managing Director, Andre Compion, confirmed the sponsorship and partnership at the event, with a value of over half a million Namibian dollars. He stated, “It is our mandate and mission at FlyNamibia to support our country and its people as far as we are able. Smart partnerships such as this are the key to driving growth and development. We hope our support and the collective endeavours of this new relationship will help further Namibia’s football aspirations and bring about even more prosperity to a sport we all enjoy and vehemently support.”

As part of the partnership, FlyNamibia will transport the Namibia national under 23 football team to Luanda for the TotalEnergies U23 Africa Cup of Nations on a chartered flight. This new relationship will also make it easier for the team to travel between countries during competitions.

FlyNamibia’s CEO, Henri van Schalkwyk, CEO of Namibia Airports Company, Bisey /Uirab, and the Interim General Secretary of the Namibia Football Association, Jochen Traut, were all present at the event. Steven Junior Damaseb, a player for the NFA, also expressed his excitement at the new transport partnership, stating, “It’s an honour to partner with FlyNamibia.”

FlyNamibia’s commitment to supporting Namibia’s sporting teams and heroes is commendable. The airline’s partnership with the Namibia Football Association is an excellent opportunity for both parties to work together towards a common goal, and we look forward to seeing the fruits of this partnership in the future.
