FlyNamibia to get global access by joining Airlink


Privately-owned domestic and regional airline for Namibia, FlyNamibia, has officially joined Airlink’s Global Distribution System (GDS) in an effort to promote their services to a wider market.

A GDS is regarded as a network system owned or operated by a company, in this case, Airlink, that enables transactions between travel industry service providers, like airlines, hotels, car rental companies and travel agencies.

Through this GDS, Airlink, who already has global reach and the ability to display and sell its inventory in many markets, FlyNamibia will now enjoy the same global access on a franchisee basis, reports Tourism Update.

A “major milestone”

FlyNamibia CEO, Andre Compion, said that joining Airlink was a major turning point for them.

“Joining the GDS is a major milestone for our growing airline, and it will be a boost for Namibia because it makes our flights, network and schedule visible to customers in parts of the world that, until now, we have been unable to access.  It also lets us provide customers with a convenient, user-friendly, and seamless booking platform.” Compion said.

Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster, also explained that it was a logical move on their part to have FlyNamibia join them.

“This is one of the logical progressions we envisaged when Airlink invested in FlyNamibia last September. It will help us strengthen air services within Namibia and support the Namibia Airports Company in positioning Windhoek’s Hosea Kutako International Airport as an alternative SADC region gateway hub.  By building connectivity and extending FlyNamibia’s reach, we will unlock new markets and efficiencies for Namibia’s business, trade, travel and tourism sectors,” Foster said.

FlyNamibia will also launch its new website which will be co-branded with Airlink and reservations for flights on the GDS will be processed from 29 August 2023.
