Air Namibia has taken delivery of its first Airbus A330-200, one of a pair of A330s being leased from US lessor Intrepid Aviation.

The aircraft features a two-class cabin with 244 seats, including 30 in business class, says the airframer.

Air Namibia is a previous Airbus operator, having used A340-300s and A319s, and the airline's managing director, Theopoltina Namases, says the A330 is a "perfect fit" for the carrier.

"With an aircraft we know to be both reliable and comfortable it will offer the best flight experience to our passengers," adds Namases.

Both A330s being leased by the airline will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines.
