Airport operator Namibia Airports Company (NAC) has officially opened its new NAD$100m (US$7m) state-of-the-art terminal building at Walvis Bay International Airport in Namibia, southwest Africa.

Hage Geingob, President of Namibia, inaugurated the new terminal and commended the NAC for laying foundations for further infrastructure development in the country. He later called on Namibians to cherish and protect their national assets saying it was easy to destroy but difficult to build.

“Today marks a milestone in the development of aviation infrastructure in our country,” said Geingob. “The government’s commitment and prioritization of transport infrastructure is evidenced in major investments in the expansion, upgrade and construction of aviation, rail, road and port infrastructure. This terminal building sets Walvis Bay Airport on course to become Namibia’s second international airport.”

“Modern and reliable infrastructure is critical for high and sustained economic growth. Without it, almost everything in the economic value chain tends to be slower, less reliable and more expensive. This new facility is a shot in the arm for our economy, as it will boost efficiency and speed in the movement of passengers and cargo,” added Geingob.

“We have already witnessed the extensive expansion of the port over the past several years. Today, we witness the expansion of the Walvis Bay Airport and in the future, we will witness a railway from Walvis Bay to Botswana.

“This is our facility, a symbol of national development and growth. Let us exercise a zero tolerance for vandalism and ensure that this facility is always clean and presentable,” Geingob concluded.
