A lovely airline. Good service. Food was good. On par with SAA. Will use them again. The service was faultless. On schedule and despite the stop over - the turnaround was quick and efficient. Overall a great experience

I was a bit concerned when I saw the writing on the side of the plane saying something like, taking the Spirit of Namibia along. I love Namibia but entering and exiting the country, through emigration at the airport, is enormously stressful, as the locals are not at all welcoming or friendly. This is the first and last impression of...

In contrast to some of the earlier negative reviews AN saved my wife and I from missing our connection in Johannesburg to Nairobi with South African Airways. SA cancelled their flight due to leave 30 minutes before Air Namibia's so my wife and I had to purchase tickets for AN instead. Luckily there were seats available! While the airline/planes may...

This was the cheapest international flight I've bought so big ups for that. The crew were very friendly, aircraft was old, but clean, drinks service was a bit on the slow side, the food was good though. Overall, a very good experience - I'll be using them again in the future

Well this was my first flight ever, so i was both excited and scared(mind you all the things you see and hear about in movies), the airport hosea kutako is well structured... you find what you need easily, and you ask for help where you can't (just look for the guys wearing neon vests or any of the staff members)....

In spite of having been booked 6 months previous to our flight and turning up 2 hours before due flight , we were 'bumped' off our flight because the airline had overbooked the flight by 3 seats. We pleaded, argued, cajoled but to no good. After waiting around in Windhoek airport for several hours, we were taken with a flight...

What a great flight - you're not even properly in the air for 35 minutes, then the pilots inform the passengers that they've started to decent . . . Very efficient way to cover the more than 700 kilometers you need to travel by car . . .
