We bring prominent industry voices to the table to establish the "ground truth" in an informal and candid fashion.

In this wide-ranging panel session, we ask the tough question "Just what is the role of a National Airline?"

Should it be seen as a Commercial enterprise or strategic economic enabler?

Is it possible that it can be both?

After 74 years of operation, Air Namibia was formally liquidated in March 2021.

In this session, we explore what has happened to air connectivity in Namibia in the months following the cessation of the national carrier and how connectivity can be improved to, from and within the country.

We also discuss the role of a new SAA and its prospective challenges
