“Air namibia wishes to update the flying public, trade and all stakeholders on the status of the national airline operations; 1., effective Thursday 11 February 2021 Effective Thursday morning, all flight operations will be cancelled, with all aircraft returning to base. 2. The reservation system for taking new bookings is also suspended,” the advisory read.
