The little aircraft with the friendly captain and the first officer gave us great service and a safe trip. It is soooooo convenient to be able to travel ftom Plett to Johannesburg or vice versa. The personal touch with the cooler box with refreshments put many a smile on the passengers faces. Thanks a million for rendering this service!

(My second flight with them actually departed and arrived a few minutes early - once everyone had boarded, we took off!) On both flights they served something to drink, as well as a small chocolate or packet of chips - all complimentary. On both flights,...

The last time we had flown on a Beechcraft was in 2011 on our way to Kaye Dag-Dag in Mali. Stepping onto this beautiful aircraft brought back fond memories and the Captain of the Flight, Cpt. Breydon Blignaut was extremely professional and welcoming. He made the passengers settle in very well. This is one great aviator!

Most frequent travellers from Bloemfontein were ecstatic when CemAir started offering flights between Johannesburg and Bloemfontein as an alternative for the terrible service provided by SA Express. On 17 September 2018 the 14:00 flight between the two cities was cancelled (due to “technical problems”). We were only informed about the cancellation when we were supposed to start boarding. Passengers were...

Our flight was on time, plenty of snacks and drinks, including alcohol! Service was also very good. Way better than any American airplanes, except JetBlue.
