Air Namibia is operating a Pratt & Whitney JT9D-powered Boeing 747SP leased from partner South African Airways (SAA) on its services from Windhoek, Namibia, to Frankfurt and London. Later this year the Namibian flag carrier will take delivery of a General Electric CF6-powered 747-400 Combi from the manufacturer. Air Namibia plans to use the aircraft's 40t cargo capacity to take advantage of the significant freight export market from the southern African country. The 747-400 Combi was built for South Korea's Asiana but never delivered.
