Nope. 10.5.8 is Leopard; Snow Leopard is 10.6.

Call Apple, buy a Snow Leopard DVD for $20. Get an external optical drive or use "remote disc" to install Snow Leopard on this machine, then use Software Upgrade to get it to 10.6.8.

If this is an original (2008) MBA, then you can only go as high as Lion (10.7.5). If this is a "Late 2008" aka "Nvidia 2008" model (released in October of 2008), then you can upgrade all the way to Mavericks, as you can with any later model. But not until you upgrade to 10.6.8.
