Online, customers can book for a flight by using the web page. Passengers can also check their flight status and manage their booking. Nordwind Airlines also provides hotel reservation services. If by chance, the site is in Russian by default, the option to change the language from Russian to English (shown as EN) is located at the top right of the page.

Conclusion

We were actually reading about Russian tourism until we stumbled upon this airline. Writing this review was out of curiosity at first. But, now, the purpose is to provide you relevant information to be more aware about the services, features, and reviews about Nordwind Airlines.

To be honest, there are not much information regarding Nordwind Airlines. However, their website provided all the needed information. I had never flown with Nordwind Airlines before, but judging through what we gathered earlier, I think travelling with them can be a good option.

Booking of scheduled flights is done through the Air Canada website. For reference, customers refer to the link below:

Sharp Airlines Reviews-Malcolm Sharp
Malcolm Sharp

In 1990, an air facility was established, but only with a single Piper PA-31-350 Chieftain, a twin-engined aircraft known to be a vulnerable yet popular choice of aircraft back then. The airline had slowly grown in time, and had acquired the aircraft of Fairchild Metro to replace the Chieftains. It was then that the airline added a new network to Essendon Airport. In time, Sharp Airlines added several more route networks to Port Augusta, Portland, and even to the largest island in the Furneaux Group, Flinders Island.

Now, Sharp Airlines has 10 aircraft of Cessna, Piper, and Fairchild which can accommodate 3-19 passengers. Their parent company is Sharp Aviation Pty. Ltd and they are still being led by the founder and managing director, Malcolm Sharp.

SATA Air Açores Reviews

A group of Portuguese investors and Bensaúde & Co. Lda. established “Sociedade Açoreana de Estudos Aéreos” in 194, which in English, means “Azorean Aviation Studies Company.” The purpose of the creation of the inter-island airline was to link the Azorean archipelago and continental Portugal, and to obtain the governmental concession. The Portuguese government granted temporary concession to the airline, which operated mail, cargo, and air passenger services between São Miguel, Terceira, and Santa Maria airports. They initially started with two de Havilland DH.104 Dove aircraft.

Moving forward, SATA Air Açores has a current fleet size of 6 Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft and serves 11 routes to Azores, Madeira, and Spain. The airline is currently headquartered at João Paulo II Airport and they are currently being led by Paulo Menezes.

The Livery

liveryIt is basically a geometric composite of nine-shapes, representing the nine islands of the archipelago, joined to form the ubiquitous Açor identified in legend. When exploded, each shape can be placed alone in geographical context to form a modernist map of the Azores. This new logo was introduced from a year-long-effort design by Ivity-Corp to express new fleet revitalization, referred to as Blue Island Açor.

Flying SATA Air Açores

SATA Air Açores Reviews-inflightThere’s no information shown as to how services are done on board. But, because the airline uses two model aircraft of Bombardier with 37- and 80-passenger capacity, it’s quite expected that they only have one class of service inflight. But, SATA Air Açores makes sure travellers get the best services they could ever have.

For children (under the age 2), flying with SATA Air Açores is being paid for only 10% of the fare. Milk bottles and food containers can be heated during flight and coloring books are distributed on board. A special accompaniment service is available for children between 3 months and 4 years who travel alone. Though, please be reminded that this service should be requested when the booking is made and is subject to a fee.

Official Website and Mobile App

SATA Air Açores Reviews-pageOne of the good things about the official site of SATA Air Açores is their theme color. The choice of different shades of blue gives a calm and clean effect to its customers. However, the font size of the text content is too small to be readable at times. But, basically, travellers can search and book for flights, car rentals services or hotel reservations. Unlike other airlines, SATA Air Açores has an option to provide their activities (things to do in Portugal) services located right next to booking flights option. Additionally, the website lets customers manage their bookings online.
SATA Air Açores Reviews-mobile app

If travellers are more of a mobile-user, no worries, because SATA Air Açores has a mobile app available for Android and iOS users.

However, for some reason, the most recent posted comments are showing complaints over SATA Air Açores’ services on board. But, to be honest, the concern of these passengers was the minimal flight entertainment or close-to-none. On a positive note, the Portuguese airline was being complimented for their crew’s attentiveness.

Michael Arumemi-Ikhide CEO

Arik Air was established when it took over the air facility of Lagos in 2006. The airline started with 2 Bombardier CRJ-900 to domestic routes. On the same year, Arik Air was granted an authorization by the Federal Ministry of Aviation to extend their flight networks to Trinidad and Tobago, Amsterdam, London, and Madrid. It was in 2008, when the airline was granted permission to fly to the United States (by US Department of Transportation).

Now, Arik Air is headquartered at Arik Air Aviation Center on the grounds of Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos State. They are being led by their Chairman, Sir JIA Arumemi-Ikhide, and carry the company slogan “Wings of Nigeria.” Arik Air now has a total of 32 aircraft serving 26 extended domestic networks and some international destinations.

Arik Air Reviews over Service & Experience

inflightChecking through online feedback regarding the Nigerian airlines of over 39 Arik Air reviews, the air carrier has been garnering not-good scores from its passengers. An overall rating of 3/10 was given. What’s worse, is the most recent posts are all negative and complaints towards Arik Air’s services. Majority of the comments state that they had the worst experience with Arik Air.

One reviewer on the 3rd of July 2016 said:
“By far one of the worst experiences I have had flying out of the country. After a 12 hours layover in New York, when it came time to board, they were late checking their passengers in and then when we got to gate we sat there for another 4 hrs before they told us to line up for boarding.

We waited another hour and they proceed to tell us that the flight was going to be delayed for an hour, 45 mins later we were told they were having technical issues that could last for hours. If you ever going to west Africa, Arik Air is not the airline.”

Conclusion

Arik Air is not one of the popular airlines nowadays. Maybe, because it is majorly routed to Nigerian destinations. However, it’s quite sad that the airline is not good at maintaining a good standing even on domestic flights. This can be a big problem if they would compete internationally. They should fix some of their loose ends first, then maybe they could be part of the growing airline industry.

EasyFly Reviews

EasyFly Reviews-Alfonso Ávila
Alfonso Ávila

One of the prominent cities in the world is Bogotá. The capital of Colombia, known for its colonial-era landmarks, has touched the tourists’ love for Spanish culture and destinations. If you recall, we already wrote a review about Avianca. Today, we’ll be talking about a newly established low-cost airline named EasyFly. Join me as we discover if it is easy to fly with EasyFly.

EasyFly was actually founded by Alfonso Ávila who was also the founder of Aero República or what is more known now as “Copa Airlines,” founded in 1992. The Colombian low-cost airline started with one British Aerospace Jetstream 41 aircraft. Now, it has grown to 17 aircraft and 25 more ATR are expected and ordered by EasyFly to expand its fleet. EasyFly uses the slogan “Hace fácil volar,” which means “It makes it easy to fly.” It operates 18 destinations and is adding 2 more routes in the future with Venezuela and Aruba.

Official Website and Mobile App

Accessing the official site of EasyFly is easy. Though, we had to inform users to be advised that the web page is in Spanish by default. To be honest, we can’t find an option to change the version of the site to English. So, for the sake of this review we translated the site via Google Translate. Basically, EasyFly lets customers book their reservations online but only for flight options with no car rental or hotel accommodation services.
EasyFly Reviews-page
The web page shows a lot more about the services, deals, and policies of the airline. It also promotes the tourism of Bogotá or other places of Colombia by mentioning their top destinations. Customers having difficulties on using the travel site or understanding the services can actually call their customer support. But, please be informed that their call center hours operates from Monday to Friday from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and on Saturday, Sunday, and holidays from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

These services are also available on their travel app, though are only available in the Google Play Store for Android users.

EasyFly Reviews and Services

Kulula Reviews

The first “no-frills” or low-cost airline in South Africa and also the second placer from the bottom list of the “
World’s Top 100 Airlines” by Skytrax: in this review, we’ll look more on Kulula.

Kulula Reviews-leadership Erik VenterKulula traces its roots back to 2001 and started operations in the same year. The airline provides major domestic flights to the citizens of South Africa. Comair is the parent company of Kulula, which also operates flights as a franchisee of British Airways. Erik Rudolp Venter has been their CEO since 2011. Erik also serves as their Finance Director since 2013. However, during his leadership, recently Kulula has hit a currency turbulence.

The South African budget airline is headquartered at Bonaero Park, Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni, Gauteng with two hubs: OR Tambo and Lanseria International Airport. Now, Kulula has a total fleet size of 10 Boeing aircraft catering flights to 7 destinations internationally.

Flying with Kulula

Kulula Reviews-inflightKulula offers two kinds of service: Economy and Business class. All seats in both classes can be reclined for a flexible position and comfort. Incoming passengers can select their seat on the website, however extra charges are required. Meals and snacks are sold on board in which their menu includes a meat roll sub, veggie roll sub, Pringles, Oreos, chocolates, muffins, and more tasty snacks.

To keep passengers entertained, flight attendants hand out Khuluma magazines which feature different topics like lifestyle, gadgets, shopping trends, photography, and business.

PC and Mobile Version

Kulula Reviews-pageThe official website is pretty standard for an airline interface. To be honest, initially, I mistook Kulula for an online travel agency. Kulula’s page is pretty much the basic airline service: everything from booking flights to arranging hotel and car reservations. Packages for holiday destinations with discounted prices are included under the category of packages. The website allows passengers to manage their flights by checking in and adding extra services during flights.

To access the mobile version of their website, use “kulula.mobi.” However, a travel app is not yet available from the App Store and Google Play Store.

Kulula Reviews of Passengers

Kulula is not yet given a star rating by SkyTrax. Despite the “almost lowest” ranking, Kulula received positive reviews from their previous passengers. Some of the reviews mentioned that the seats were a little cramped; however, they didn’t complain, rather they came to Kulula’s defense saying that the company is a budget airline, therefore the seats were justified.

Customers complimented the cleanliness of each airliner and the friendliness of the attendants. One passenger in particular was happy when the ground attendants allowed him to board his flight despite arriving at the airport 20 minutes before his flight. Kulula doesn’t seem so bad.

Conclusion

Judging through several Kulula reviews, despite being the 99th place airline in the world, Kulula provides quality service and manages to gain loyal customers. It will take many years before they achieve major improvements but with better management, Kulula is still in the race.
