In the end, nature and man are nothing but one and the same entity.” Join us as we wander about the flag carrier of Madagascar一Air Madagascar.

History and Facts
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 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.

Now, Air Madagascar has 9 aircrafts serving 36 destinations internationally and its headquartered in Ivato International Airport. A member of the global airline alliance “Alliance Vanille”, a cooperation agreement by the Commission of the Indian Ocean between Air Madagascar, Air Austral, Air Mauritius, Air Seychelles and Air Inter Islands.

Air Madagascar Reviews and Feedback
Recently, based on Air Madagascar reviews, the flag carrier of Madagascar didn’t gather positive comments from its passengers. Mostly are rated 1 out 10 for their posted reviews. Some customers are complaining majority about the airline’s confusing schedules and cancelled flights while others are commenting about the neatness of the cabin interior.

Another reviewer was extremely mad after Air Madagascar cancelled their initial flight and moved it to the following day without any warning. They provided proper accommodation as a compensation. However, her second flight with the same airline was overpriced and was even moved to 4 hours earlier. Due to that unreplaced booking they had to book another flight just to have a decent return flight to Bangkok. She had a total of 3 flights and she considered them all stressful. This was another 1/10 customer review.

In A Nutshell
Judging through Air Madagascar reviews, the airline had been going to unfamiliar changes since the new CEO was appointed this 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. We used Air Madagascar for four internal flights. All four were reasonably on time (max delay about 45 mins). Cabin staff friendly and good complimentary snack and newspaper on each flight. Be prepared for very rapid braking at fort Dauphin (short runway)
