HKIA bly in die kollig

12 July 2018 | Infrastructure

Die Namibië Lughawensmaatskappy (NAC) beplan om breedvoeringe konsultasies te hou om opeenhoping by die Internasionale Lughawe Hosea Kutako (HKIA) te verminder.

Tydens Air Namibia se jaarlikse beraad wat verlede week in Windhoek gehou is, het die NAC se uitvoerende hoof, Albertus Aochamub, gesê dié konsultasies sou fokus op die uitbreiding van die vertrek- en aankomssaal, meer vertrektoonbanke en 'n derde bagasieband.

Die opknappings sal na beraming sowat N$240 miljoen kos.

Aochamub het voorts gesê aankomste en vertrekke by die lughawe het die afgelope drie jaar met 33% toegeneem. “Dié groei het ongelooflike druk op die lughawe se fasiliteite geplaas,” het hy gesê.

'n Veiligheidsoudit sal teen November vanjaar uitgevoer word om te bepaal of die gebou geskik is en voldoen aan veiligheidstandaarde.

“Ons weet wat die gevolg van hierdie oudit vir ons as 'n land kan beteken,” het hy gesê.

Die oudit kyk na die infrastruktuur en wetlike bepalings oor veiligheid wat deur die Staat ingestel is. Die bestaande lughawe gebou is in 1985 gebou as 'n tydelike fasiliteit om 250 000 passasiers per jaar te hanteer. Intussen beweeg meer as 900 000 passasiers per jaar nou deur die gebou.
