Namibia’s flag carrier, Air Namibia, has announced the temporary suspension of all passenger flights effective 27 March 2020. Domestic and regional fligths will remain suspended until 20 April 2020, while the airline’s international operations, which are already suspended sice 14 March 2020, remain canceled until further notice.

Air Namibia has introduced rebooking options for travellers who need to change their travel dates due to the suspension. The airline offers all customers holding a ticket purchased to travel before 30 April 2020 one free change to a new travel date until 31 December 2020.
