Namibia Launch New Business Lounge

Menzies Aviation Unveil Amushe Lounge at Hosea Kutako International Airport

September saw the launch of a new business lounge in Windhoek at Hosea Kutako International Airport. The lounge has appropriately been named Amushe, an Oshiwambo word meaning “All Welcome”.

This is the fifth lounge to be launched in Southern Africa, alongside Shongololo, Mashonzha and Ses’Fikile Lounges in Johannesburg O.r. Tambo International Airport and Umphafa at Durban King Shaka International Airport.

The 214sqm lounge can comfortably accommodate 55 passengers and offers free wi-fi, plug points at each seat, a wonderful range of consumables, disabled facilities and showers for passengers to refresh prior to travelling. Customers who have experienced the lounge have dubbed Amushe ‘a breath of fresh air’ for the airport.

Russell Doane Senior Vice President AMEI said, “After a lengthy and challenging tender and build process, I'm delighted our latest complimentary service lounge has opened in WDH. The team should be very proud of their achievements in delivering an absolutely first class lounge facility for the airport and our customers.”

Menzies Aviation have already signed British Airways Comair, Condor and Qatar Airways to the Lounge services, with others set to follow.
