Airbus 330-200 incident at Hosea Kutako Airport

MEDIA RELEASE - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

AIR NAMIBIA AIRBUS A330-200 INCIDENT AT HOSEA KUTAKO AIRPORT 

Sunday, 13 October, 2013: Air Namibia wishes to announce that there was an incident which took place late on Friday afternoon (11 October) at Hosea Kutako International Airport, which resulted in slight damage to the wing of our new Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

The incident resulted in an aircraft operated by South African Airways colliding with the stationary Air Namibia Airbus A330-200, which was parked in its allocated space at the terminal.

The incident is still under investigation to ascertain what exactly led to the collision.

Hosea Kutako International Airport does not have defined markings or signage that direct aircraft once they land and this function is carried out solely by ground marshals employed by the Namibia Airports Company.

Engineers onsite assessed the extent of the damage to Air Namibia’s A330-200 and some temporary repair work was done, which placed the aircraft immediately back into operation.

The incident did not disrupt the scheduled operations, and the aircraft is back in full service.
