Hopefully we'll be back to exploring London's magical streets soon!

The Purple shall rule! “We are shocked about the developments as we were not aware that 1time would file for liquidation. We actually discovered this when we landed after our first flight. We had pulled all our resources towards that and had received all the necessary regulatory approval for our flights, so this is really a setback. Our contingent measures are that we expect to re-start our operations within the next 21 working days.” Matipedza Karashe, Fresh Air commercial director.

The Bottom Line: The Namibia Transport & Allied Workers Union & Air Namibia have agreed on salary increases. Employees earning N$24001 and more would get a 7% increase, those earning less than N$16000 a 9% increase and the rest would get an 8% increase. Housing allowances would increase by N$200 a month.
