Flying with Air Namibia from Frankfurt allows you to get away from the hustle of Terminal1 in Frankfurt. They having their check in counter in the very more quiet Terminal 2 which makes your start a lot of more comfortable. They check runs quickly and the staff is nice. Once on board you getting free drinks also alcoholics for free....

I llike Air NAmibia. Despite the constant bail outs and the fact that their prices are unaffordable to the majotiy of the Namibian population, I am rooting for them. The flight from Eros to Ondangwa is barely an hour. And they offer a snack and drinks. For a struggling airline, this comes of as some what wasteful. Also, the snacks...

Air Namibia use Airbus A319-100 in their fleet regionally. Business class is spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately on all three flights with these aircrafts, I never had a seat that could operate the leg rests properly. The service is great. The meals are good too. They tend to be on time. I was pleasantly surprised on all three flights.

Unfortunately we had to wait for six hours for connecting flight to Cape Town. We decided to take advantage of the lounge which was reasonably priced and close to...

Flew Air Namibia on a business trip from Jhb to Windhoek on 19 June 2018 departing at 06h40. Fights are very competitively priced compared to SAA. Good friendly service from cabin crew. Flight was not full and was able to do some work on route.

I flew from Durban to Gaborone on a direct flight and returned on a direct flight. Service was great. Checking my bag and the boarding process was easy. I got a meal on the flight to Gaborone which I didn’t expect on a 1 hour flight and the food was tasty. I was lucky to get a seat in the...

Windhoek Airport was extremely busy. The departure lounge was very hot and stuffy. Lots of passengers and the walkways very narrow, so if you had hand luggage there wasn't much space to walk past other passengers without bumping into them. The check in process proceeding with friendly staff and a helpful attitude. The fight was comfortable with enough leg room...
