No bailout? An unopposed liquidation from government is very telling about the state of the economy.

Loosing a national carrier has consequences for an economy, as you state, its bad news for guests, as it is for business in all sectors.

So other carriers will pick up the slack?

I suspect there is a bigger plan behind this. Privatizing the airline makes sense for Namibia

Yeah, Swiss Air is a good example.

Daar is ń interne mosie van wantroue in Oubones noudat hy ń TTR250 gekoop het. Ons vermoed hy gaan dwarstrekkerig raak by dag 4 rond as  hy moet kyk hoe die ander op 2 wiele is...

Whilst not on the scale of SAA bailouts, our government has poured in about N$16.5 Billion (adjusted for inflation) into the airline since 2003.  It was time to put it out of its misery.  I'm sad to see it go, flew Air Namibia often and it was always a good feeling to see "our" aircraft in a foreign airport.  The flight crew in my opinion was excellent, I might be biased though.

There are MANY airlines still servicing Namibia, so any concerns about being able to come here is seriously misplaced.  Depending on where you fly from you've got a choice between Qatar, KLM, Lufthansa, SAA, Eurowings, BA and Ethiopian airlines.

Internally there are local companies that will fill the gap.

Why now?  Well I believe SWAPO is under severe political pressure to get the country back on course, people have spoken during our last elections and SWAPO lost massive ground.  They have a couple of years until the next presidential election to act, so hopefully more wasteful SOE's get cleaned up.

Let's hope they do something and it seems the Namibian voters do not vote like sheep like south of their border. >:(

I have flown Air Namibia quite often the last few years. Have always been very satisfied with them.

Let us hope that our Govt in SA can take a leaf out of the Namibian Govt's book regardin SAA  :peepwall:
