Air Namibia – baggage

The baggage policy at Air Namibia may seem a bit complicated since there are many different guidelines that vary depending on the class and route.

Passengers travelling with this airline can bring hand baggage on board. For children and babies, you must pay at least 50% of the adult baggage fee, but they are entitled to the same size baggage. Babies sitting on their parents’ lap may carry baggage with a maximum weight of 23 kilograms and a pram or child restraint.

Checked baggage at Air Namibia

In economy class you are entitled to one checked baggage with a maximum weight of 30 kg and total dimensions of 158 cm.

For local and African flights, baggage guidelines are variable. For example, for connections between West and South Africa in business class you are entitled to the same baggage as for a flight to Europe, but in economy class you can bring luggage with a maximum weight of 23 kilograms.

Baggage for domestic flights

The dimensions of luggage in domestic flights also differ depending on. . . the model of the aircraft that operates the connection. All information is available on the carrier’s website. However, the standard rule is 32 kilograms in business class and 23 kilograms in economy class. In some cases, each traveller is entitled to one piece of baggage, in other two, even in economy class. If you are not certain yet how you will travel around Africa or Namibia, it is safest to assume that checked baggage will not exceed 23 kg and that you should only bring one piece.

Air Namibia – booking classes

It follows from the above paragraph that there are two classes in Air Namibia: economic and business. The latter is privileged in terms of carrying baggage - each traveller can bring 2 pieces of hand baggage and 2 pieces of checked baggage (not including some domestic flights).

In addition to the baggage privilege, the economy class also provides greater travel comfort - comfortable armchairs and high-quality meals. However, the business class looks different on long-haul flights and on short, local flights. The first one definitely provides more comfort compared to seats in the economy class.
