We flew between Johannesburg, South Africa and Windhoek, Namibia both ways. It was a 1 hr 45 m flight each way. In that time, flight crews worked so efficiently that could serve us a good lunch in a very pleasant manner. Also, they were very caring about the comfort of our flights. The leg room was much wider than some...

Original Flight Frankfurt to Windhoek on 24th of October cancelled with short notice we had to rebook to fly a day earlier, leading to additional costs for room and expense - Taxi etc. Confirmed booking for...

I booked this flight some 3 months prior and made a spelling error on the booking which they would not change for less than £620 penalty. In the end we had to purchase new tickets when we got to Frankfurt for £800. Their London office had indicated that all would be ok . It amounted to daylight robbery as I...

I travelled with a baby from JHB to Windhoek. Stepping onto the plane I requested assistance but was referred to the cabin attendant “at the back”. On requesting assistance from him, he ignored me and left. I struggled through-out the flight with no assistance offered whatsoever. Not recommended when traveling alone with children.

I have often flown with AirNamibia and have always been satisfied. My most recent flight was a 2-hour flight from Johannesburg to Windhoek. No glitches whatsoever. Last year I flew from Frankfurt to Windhoek... same story - nothing to complain about in the Economy class. And I always enjoy reading the in-flight magazine, Flamingo.

Already our flight from Frankfurt to Windhoek on 11/02/2018 was surprisingly pleasant! The business class cabin offers 3 x 2 flat bed seats per row: long enough for 1.85 m tall persons. Service was very friendly and attentive: the food was fine, the selection of wines large and the staff offered tasting of each wine before serving. After this night...

We booked our flights for Feb and Mar 2018 in October 2017. This was for our holiday in Swakopmund. We were advised on 22 Feb 2018 that both our flights were cancelled due to a maintenance program on their aircraft. Any good airline will know in advance if flights will have to be cancelled due to aircraft maintenance. Totally unacceptable!!!
