Reintroduce the Old Terminal Building at Hosea Kutako International Airport

This petition had 2,759 supporters


AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) is concerned about the draining effect of the various bottlenecks created by the current terminal building at Hosea Kutako International Airport. Other than its members, who make use of this airport to pickup and drop-off passengers who make use of international flights, the frustration of smooth transfers through the terminal building is the source of serious frustration for the general flying public.

There is little, if any, hope that this problem will be resolved by constructing new facilities, as the previous attempt by the Namibian authorities ended up in the tender process showing a total cost of some N$7 billion which, in any event, was found to be irregular by the Supreme Court of Namibia. It is also no secret that the Namibian Government simply does not have the funds to invest in a modern high cost terminal building.

It therefore makes logical sense to reintroduce the old terminal building into normal scheduled services. The cost of converting the current old terminal building into a small portion for VIP movements and the balance for accommodating the recent international airlines, who are now visiting Hosea Kutako International Airport, such as Qatar Airways, KLM, Ethiopian Airlines and German Wings, would be minimal if compared to a new facility.

AOPA has already formally approached the relevant Namibian decision makers with this proposal but would like to measure the support of the Namibian flying public for their efforts. AOPA therefore asks that you support their efforts by means of signing this petition and sharing it on Facebook. When sharing, we kindly ask that you make use of the hashtags #oldterminalbuilding and #savehoseakutako.

Aviation greetings,

The AOPA team!
