SA flight to Mala Mala: Where is it?

Post by Carlo » 05 Apr 2009, 23:37

I have looked in the simairline timetable, I've looked in the Star Alliance timetable and I've looked in the SA timetable. There are no flights to Mala Mala listed anywhere, and I'd really like to fly this route. Where can I find the necessary information? Thanks

I tried to locate flights for it, but also came up empty. I can't even find Mala Mala (FAMD/AAM) listed on SAA's website as a destination. :(

It's listed as "unique to Simairline", so perhaps it's a fictional/one-off route?

Carlo, I only found one SA Airlink flight to JNB from AAM on a J41 using flightstats.com

That's interesting that there is a flight listed on Flightstats (and OAG as well, which I trust far more than Flightstats), but the flight does not appear in the SA timetable, or the Star Alliance timetable.

It's operated by South African Airlink.

From their website:
Mala Mala air service is exclusively for guests visiting Mala Mala, Lion sands, Nottens Bush Camp and Kirkmans Camp. This service cannot be booked online; please contact your tour operator or travel agent for assistance.

I'll talk with Aaron about this.

I will add it as a discontinued route in the near future.

I believe the route is now added to the SimAirline.net timetable as a discontinued route.

Thanks for pointing it out Carlo 8)
