Air Madagascar Reviews

Air Madagascar was founded in March 1947 by a private French airline,
Transports Aériens Intercontinentaux with the aim to cater flights by TAI and Air France. Initially, Air Madagascar began with two Douglas DC-3 and de Havilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide. To reorganize the airline, in 1961, the name was changed to Madair, and it became the national airline of the independent republic of Madagascar. However, a negative image was alongside with this rebranding that they thought of changing it again to “Air Madagascar” in 1962.

In a Nutshell

Judging through Air Madagascar reviews, the airline had been going through unfamiliar changes since the new CEO was appointed in October 2015. Maybe, they are in the great period of adjustment which makes their loyal passengers uncomfortable and ruins the consistency of the lenient and quality customer service that Air Madagascar was known for. Have you flown with them before?

  1. Let’s be clear, in Madagascar you have little choices, a new competitor to Air Mad has just started operating but choices are limited and the best option is to fly and be driven back (get a chauffeur) when you want to visit the island. Overall good service.
