I took Air Madagascar to fly from Tananarive to Paris on a Monday night. Boarding was delayed by 30 mins, however, since the plane was not too full, we left on time. There was a lot of room, as not all seats were occupied - the one next to me for example was empty. This made for a comfortable 10h40mins...

I took 4 flights with Air Madagascar during my trip to the country. Every one of the flights changes. One was cancelled, two were delayed by a several hours and one left earlier than it was supposed to (?) We both had items stolen from our bags when they were checked. Unfortunately, this is the only airline that seems to...

The check in at Antananarivo is absolutely terrible. We waited in line for probably 40mins, with only one person in front of us. No information was shared and no one seems too interested in helping with any information. Fortunately the plane waited for all 70 passengers as well as a few extra who were on stand-by, and we eventually left...

I have often flown between Paris and Tana with Air Madagascar. I am usually very satisfied with the flights, however this was the first time I encountered some delays that made this trip very long. We were first delayed in Paris, due to some controls (technical?). We did not leave the tarmac for more than one hour. The cabin crew...

Flight on time, relatively comfortable and felt safe. Big disappointment to find that my checked bag had been very carefully rifled at TNR airport (little disturbance suggests that they used the XRay equipment to find what they wanted) and my Bluetooth Speaker stolen - with hand baggage limited to 5kg, there is little choice to pack some things in checked...

WORST AIRLINE! BUT one does not have a choice to use Air Madagascar when travelling around Madagascar. Among the locals, the airline company has been nicknamed Air Maybe because you never know if you will be flying or missing your flight. For example, my flight was scheduled to leave out of Tamatave at 3h30-4h00pm and when I got to the...

The service of Air Madagascar has improved and is without a doubt much better than AF. In addition, it MS = 65% of the AF price.
