We were beyond worried and stressed after reading all of the Tripadvisor reviews, maybe we just had a lucky day but our flight from Tana to Nosy-Be was absolutely faultless. Easy check-in, the flight was on time. Everything went smoothly.

They canacelled our flight 20 minutes before it was due to leave. They must have known well before that but we had to sit in the airport having hung around waiting for them. Then we had to wait for our bags and then for the ticket for the hotel. The hotel they had for us was over booked so we...

I wanted to take a minute out of my day in paradise (poolside at Isalo Rock Lodge) to inform you that this airline is the worst. Madagascar is my 75th country and I’ve taken my fair share of domestic flights, and this is the most poorly run airline I have ever seen. All flights are at the best - delayed...

No communication or customer service of any kind from airline. Flight was scheduled to stop in Mayotte en route to Tana. It didn't, of course. Passengers not compensated or vouchered in any way. 'Air Maybe' continuing its already dreadful reputation.

With their new offer, Tsaradia, service on board is better with better food and welcoming. Unfortunately, they did not notify the back flight time was advanced and I would have been penalized if a friend had not told me. This company is famous for flight postponing and delays but it's the first time a flight is advanced. Inside, the chair...

Our flight got cancelled without any announcment. We had booked a flight from Antanarivo to Moroni. I already asked Air Madagaskar in Advance if the flight will be cancelled, because the flight sometimes was not available on their site but I didnT get an answer. The day bfore I looked to the site of the Antanarivo airport homepage on the...

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...
