Clutch slipping

Is the slipping of the clutch due to air in the lines

Its possible, , , but more information would be helpful to troubleshoot the issue.
When was fluid last changed?
Tried to bleed the lines yet?
Does clutch slip under heavy load or is it a continual problem when running?
Have you changed/worked on the master cylinder lately? How about the slave cylinder, any work down there?

Other issues can cause clutch slippage too, , oil changed lately?

My clutch slippage issue was resolved after I cleaned out the "return" line to the master cylinder but your problem could be different.
