Their Service between George Airport and King Shaka has always been a great experience for me. I have been serviced by the same hostess and she is always friendly and she is very helpful

Mthatha is one of the cleanest airports. Friendly staff always willing to assist. Flight is short and such a convenience. Great Service!

There has been a change in menu and they certainly cover the base. Excellent service both way. I’m happy. Fast and efficient. A suggestion to enhance the experience further. It would be great if the Ticket office in the Windhoek airport, also offered customer enquirers. There’s no where else to do it.

The flight was very late taking off, and when it did, the engines rattled so much that I feared we would not make our destination. We had an Italian rugby team on board who were astonished on walking onto the tarmac to see an old twin-propeller plane - they even took photographs of it!

Really impressed, on time, great service and food. Really surprised on a shortish flight.Good legroom and space to spread out. SA Airline are highly recommended with the only downside the terminal in Maun which is in dire need of expanding, refurbishment and just about everything else! But that is really down to the Airport Authority - you have been warned!

This was a replacement flight for a carrier that had been grounded so problems were expected but didn't happen. The only concern was check in a the small Hoedspruit airport as 2 planes were leaving at the same time and there was confusion on which desk to use.
