Cricket Namibia and FlyWestair announce partnership agreement on Wednesday, 27th January 2021 at Eros Airport.
The partnership is a two-year barter agreement where FlyWestair will be the preferred airline partner for all Cricket Namibia’s local and international flights. In return FlyWestair compensates Cricket Namibia with free tickets between Windhoek and Johannesburg in support of our National program.
Cricket Namibia CEO Johan Muller, “we are extremely fortunate to partner with FlyWestair. Their ‘on-time’ track record and flexibility allows us to adapt to constantly changing International schedules. We are proud to support a local entity that will in the end contribute to Namibia’s economic development.
Cricket Namibia Vice-President Polly Negongo further added that Cricket Namibia is privileged to partner with the leading airline in Namibia, and hopes the partnership extends. “The partnership makes our plans easier locally and internationally, thank you FlyWestair.”
Henri van Schalkwyk, Westair CEO, says that it is an honour to partner with Cricket Namibia, arguably currently the best performing Namibian National sports team, especially with the strides the national team has made in the past two years on the global stage.
The pandemic has been a blight on both travel and international sports. FlyWestair hopes to make the team’s travels easy, safe and enjoyable under the current limitations.
FlyWestair CEO further says, “As a proudly Namibian airline we are here to support our country and its people by continuing to deliver exceptional on-time service. Last year we were able to conduct many repatriation flights while continuing as far as possible within the travel restrictions to offer our scheduled services.”
Currently FlyWestair operates scheduled routes between Windhoek and four destinations, including Cape Town, Johannesburg, Ondangwa and Walvis Bay. “We will continue to strive towards getting our passengers, and now also our national cricket stars, to their destinations safely and on time,” says van Schalkwyk.
