Our neighbour's national carrier is making some moves to improve their service offering to their passengers.

Air Namibia announced in a press statement that they will be making changes to their domestic and regional flights in order to increase capacity where they often have high levels of spillage. This also includes introducing flights on days of the week that better suite passengers.
