Baggage Guidelines:       

1. Maximum dimension = length + width + height;
2. A single piece of checked baggage should weigh no more than 32kg (70lb). Any bags weighing more than 32kg (70lb) must be broken down so that each piece weighs less than 32kg (70lb).
3. Excess baggage charges may apply if you exceed the weight and/or piece allowances; contact your local Air Namibia office for more information;
4. As a guide we have provided our standard checked baggage allowances, although there are exceptions based upon certain routes and ticket class. We therefore advise you to also check our baggage allowance exceptions below and, above all, take note of the baggage allowance attached to your booking on www.airnamibia.com
5. Air Namibia assesses baggage by number of pieces rather than their weight, although weight restrictions do apply.
