How is Namibian air safety lately?

Jump to last reply

In looking at how one might move about the country, air travel appears to be a logical means. But a few years ago Namibia's air safety record seemed to have suffered.

I've included some links to substantiate the problems I am referring to.

Just wondering what the word on the ground, or in the air, has been lately.

Thanks!

Swakopmund — While investigations into the latest plane crash at Swakopmund are continuing, members of the public and tourists in particular remain concerned about the number of plane crashes experienced lately.
Owners of tourist establishments, especially aviation companies New Era spoke to said they were very worried about the number of aircraft crashes experienced in the country. A Cessna aircraft bound for the Swakop-mund Airport after a sightseeing flight over Sossusvlei crashed last weekend, after attempting an emergency landing.
