The Namibia Airports Company (NAC) is a state owned enterprise established in line with the Namibian Airports Company Act, Act 25 of 1998, which functions autonomously under a Board of Directors, appointed by the Minister of Works and Transport in his capacity as the portfolio Minister. The company, which commenced operations in February 1999 with the vision to be a world-class service provider in airport operations and management, is well on its way to achieve just that.
The Namibia Airports Company is a member of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), Airports Council International (ACI) and the International Air Cargo Association (TIACA). In addition to the latter, the Namibia Airports Company is a national corporate member of the Namibia Chamber of Commerce & Industry (NCCI), the premier voice of business in Namibia. Given its central role in Namibia’s tourism sector, the Namibia Airports Company has representation on the Marketing Committee of the Namibia Tourism Board.
In its quest to become a world class service provider in airport operations and management, the Namibia Airports Company deemed it crucial for a strategic corporate focus to better enable it to serve its clients and improve its financial sustainability on the following key focus areas:
Infrastructure development, maintenance, technology and modernization;
Aeronautical revenue growth – passengers, cargo and aircraft movements;
Non-aeronautical (commercial) revenue growth – vehicle parking, advertising, car rentals, retail and property;
Cost efficiencies and internal processes; and
Human capital development.
The NAC values the importance of developing and maintaining good infrastructure and facilities at its airports to maintain world-class standards. In line with its master plans, the company has been undertaking several strategic infrastructure and commercial development projects with the aim of improving its overall service delivery.
