The Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Northern Branch chairperson, Tomas Iindji has written a letter to Minister of Works and Transport Alpheus !Naruseb asking for his intervention on flight ticket increases.

In the letter, Iindji says "NCCI has received insurmountable complaints from its members, both individuals and corporates, regarding the exorbitant prices of Air Namibia's domestic flights. These members are challenged by the skyrocketing ticket fares which cause travelling inefficiency, business costs as well as their personal safety as travellers".

Iindji said NCCI has reached out to Air Namibia who has justified the increase of domestic flight tickets, however NCCI would like the concerns of its members to be considered. "We are calling on Air Namibia through your office to revise its pricing model with immediate effect. Domestic flights must be affordable and accessible by all Namibian people and no one must be left out", Iindji said.
