Air Namibia has had to carry out temporary repairs to its newly-delivered Airbus A330-200 after it was struck by a South African Airways aircraft in an incident at Windhoek.
The A330, leased from Intrepid Aviation, had only just been delivered to the Namibian carrier, around the end of September. It has been operating the service to Frankfurt.
Air Namibia says it had been parked in its allocated space at the terminal of Windhoek's Hosea Kutako airport when the incident occurred on 11 October.
While the event is under investigation, the airline says the airport "does not have defined markings or signage" to direct aircraft once they have landed, and that this directional control is "carried out solely by ground marshals".
Air Namibia says that the aircraft received "slight" damage to its wing and that, following an assessment, "some temporary repair work was done" to enable the twinjet to return to operation. "The incident did not disrupt the scheduled operations, and the aircraft is back in full service," says the carrier.
