Getting to know Air Madagascar

Established in 1961, Air Madagascar is the flag carrier of the Indian Ocean island famous for its lemurs and other unusual wildlife. The airline covers a network of 50 destinations in 11 countries across Africa, Asia and Europe with its relatively small fleet of only 10 aircraft.

While you may not think that an island requires too much air traffic, Air Madagascar operates a whopping 20 domestic routes to the country’s major and secondary cities, such as Toliara and Tolagnaro Fort Dauphin, as well as a range of popular tourist destinations such as Nosy Be and Sainte-Marie.

Check in

Air Madagascar does not currently offer web or mobile check in, so to the counter you will go!

If you are flying a regional or international route, be sure to arrive at the airport and check in at least two hours before the scheduled departure time of your flight. If you are travelling within Madagascar, arriving an hour before scheduled departure time should be sufficient.

All passengers, including children and infants, are to be in possession of their identification documents, a passport if flying abroad as well as any visas required for further travel. Should you not have the relevant travel documents, the airline does reserve the right to deny you boarding.
