“We look at it not only in terms of business but also, re-visiting the long standing friendship between Ghana and Namibia,” hew said.

He said the flights also served as a means of integrating the West African and South African regions.

Mr Shipepe urged staff of Air Namibia-Ghana to be dedicated, hard working and disciplined in order to ensure the success of the airline.

Mr Peter Addai, Country Manager of the Airline said: “We are very much aware of the task ahead and we would do all that it takes to ensure that Air Namibia succeeds,” he said.

Ms Milinga Muyunda, Acting General Manager, Commercial Services said: “It is a very big challenge, which we are willing to take with both hands. We are willing to do it and we can”.

She said Air Namibia was soon going to be “a citizen of Ghana.

“We are going to work hard and make sure we get that citizenship,” she added.

The town office was dedicated and blessed by the Rev. Father Fred Agyeman
