Flight Routes and Schedules

Also see International Flights

Air Madagascar's Domestic Flight Network serves destinations around the "eight corners" of Madagascar. However Antananarivo is the airline's hub, and if you want to fly from location A to location B, it is almost always the case that you will need to fly first from A to Tana, then from Tana to B, because (with very few exceptions) there are no direct flights between A and B.

The airline normally has 7 aircraft dedicated to domestic and regional flights: 2 Boeing 737-300, 3 ATR turboprops, and 2 smaller De Haviland Twin Otters. That is not a very large number of aircraft, especially with regional destinations as far and wide as Johannesburg and Nairobi in addition to the various airports around the island. As a consequence, if a problem occurs and a plane is not ready to perform a flight, it is rare that a replacement aircraft happens to be available -- and that would result in delays. In addition, many airports do not have night lighting, so afternoon flights that incur delays may get canceled if the return flight would require a take-off after dark.

This summer, during the high season, the following domestic destinations are scheduled to have at least one flight every day to (and from) Antananarivo:

  • Diego Suarez (Antsiranana)
  • Nosy Be
  • Mahajanga (except Tuesdays)
  • Toamasina
  • Toliara
  • Ft Dauphin (Taolañaro)
Other destinations are served less frequently:
  • Morondava: every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
  • Ste Marie (Nosy Boraha): Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
  • Maroantsetra: 3 times every week
  • Antalaha: 3 times every week
  • Sambava: 3 times every week
