Walvis Bay’s newly built passenger jetty has received nearly 5000 passengers since the start of 2020. Additional five passenger vessels were expected to have called at the port for the remaining weeks of January.
Speaking on board of the MSC Ochestra, one of the many passenger vessels calling at the port of Walvis Bay, Mr. Ross Volk, Managing Director of the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) South Africa, said that Namibia is fast developing into favourable tourism hub and should ready itself to host more MSC vessels. “From next season we will have two vessels based in Southern Africa, increasing our number of call to 22 from Cape Town.
Namport’s Port Captain, Mr. Lukas Kafuna says the newly built passenger jetty, in addition to Namibia’s strategic location, will prompt more passenger vessels to call at the port. “We are also consistently working to ensure that all vessels enjoy a safe passage in the Namibian waters and that all visitors are given the opportunity of appreciating Namibia and what the country has to offer”.
