We took an Air Namibia 40 minute flight from Windhoek to Walvis Bay. The security and other ground personnel at the airports were very professional. The aircraft crew...

Flying between SA and Nam options are limited.

The problem with this airline, is the check in procedure. Long que and unhelpful check in staff. The on board service, seating and flight experience are above average though.Their on board meals are surprisingly good, as far as airline food goes.

Book in advance and get better prices. When checking in ask them for the seat you prefer. Always on Time, craft are neat and tidy and stewards are vey friendly and helpful.

Being an Asian, sitting next to a Western passenger, the double standards practice (by the in-flight crew) is so very clear.

The crew were not helpfull, polite, or serviceminded. It was as if they did the passengers a favor by being there and not as if they had a job to do.

Due to their massive system overhauls, there were some boarding delays the last time I visited Namibia and as a result, I felt the need to write this review. Any system upgrade will cause all of forms of delays and my first experience when I visited Namibia in July, the delays were frustrating, however my second visit in September, was...

Air Namibia surprise in such a positive way. Economy J'burg-Windhoek-J'burg. Staff are super attentive. Food and drink quality for such short flights is just beyond expectations (and free of charge). I recommend without hesitation.
