Friday, 30th May 2014; Air Namibia wish to inform its passengers, trade partners and stakeholders that the Cabin crew strike has been suspended.

This is as a result of the agreement that was reached late Friday afternoon by the Namibian Cabin Crew Union (NCCU), and Air Namibia Management to continue addressing matters of concern by its employees internally through a consultative process. This brings an end to the industrial action which commenced during the early hours of Friday 30th May 2014 .

The suspension has given the Air Namibia Management and the Namibian Cabin Crew Union (NCCU) more time to negotiate in order to reach an amicable solution that will benefit both parties and help the company realise its long term strategic plans.

Air Namibia would like to inform it passengers that its flight schedule will return to normal effective Saturday 31 May 2014.
