Our flight from Maun was delayed by five hours, a replacement aircraft had to be flown from Johannesburg to cater for the breakdown of the scheduled aircraft (an RJ85). The staff were unprepared for this delay and much confusion arose as the majority of passengers on the flight had international connections in JNB which they missed. A good deal of...

We arrived at the Kruger Mpumalanga International (KMI) airport on 24th March 2018, after spending 12 days at Kruger National Park on our way back to Durban. The airport itself was very clean, well maintained and efficient. We checked in early as we arrived at the airport early. The check-in was efficient and quick. We had lunch upstairs at the...

Nice Airline. Flying an Embraer 190 from Johannesburg to Jamestown St Helena on a Saturday. Just over 6 hours in this Aircraft with a short stop in Windhoek, Namibia is not too long for a lovely visit to a South Atlantic GEM like St Helena Island. The food on the airline was good, the staff friendly and helpful and the...

Johannesburg to Nelspruit was our second leg on 12th March 2018 having earlier travelled from Durban to Johannesburg. We did not have a check in procedure as we were issued boarding passes when we commenced our journey in Durban. We arrived at gate E11 after coming down two escalators. The toilets near E gates were clean. All flights at E...

I've used this company before and it is always good but this time it was Amaaaazing! When you take off from Vilanculos airport have your camera ready as you'll have the most amazing view ever! Oru plane was a very small one (3 people per row) but still very stable and a good on board service. I'll totally recommend it...

I recently had to take an unexpected trip for a family illness. I needed to book the next flight to get to Joburg as quickly as possible. I was dreading the flight as it was the last I had expected to be doing that day. On this flight though was the most cheerful and professional flight attendant I had ever...

Comfortable cabin, friendly crew, and full offerings for drinks. Meal only offered beef or chicken - my fault for not ordering veggie in advance - but they tried to find me something regardless. Flew on this flight to participate in Ironman South Africa and they wanted to charge $140 on the way out of Madagascar until they realized sports equipment...

Took Airlink to and fro Joburg to Nosy Be, Madagascar with only 4 passengers on the flight. Clean, spacious cabin and a decent meal was provided for the flight. The HORRIBLE part was the Nosy Be airport on arrival and also the departure. On arrival, we were led to a tentage to apply for a visa on arrival for 25...

What a lovely experience. Trip to Cape Town with the family. The flights were on time and arrival was earlier than advertised. I have to specifically mention the air hostess (unfortunately did not get her name) that was an absolute pleasure, and on the return journey 6 days later actually remembered that I took my coffee black. She also spent...
