    • Air Malawi offers domestic flights within Malawi and regional flights include Johannesburg, Dar es Salaam, Nairobi, Harare, Lusaka. Internationally they fly to Dubai twice a week and to London once a week. I've flown them often, it's a very friendly airline, but they're struggling so double check to make sure they still operate the route you are looking for.

    • Air Mali (or Aerienne du Mali) is Mali's national airline and is one of the cheapest airlines that fly to West Africa. Routes include Bamako to Paris, Abidjan, Dakar, Ougadougou and Conakry.

    • Atlas Blue is owned by Royal Air Moroc and is based in Marrakech. It's a low-cost airline which offers cheap charter flights to Europe from several points in Morocco. (Their web site has recently merged with that of the mother-ship, Royal Air Moroc).


    • LAM is Mozambique's national airline. The web site is in Portuguese but it's easy enough to book flights since the destination names are universal. International destinations include Dar es Salaam, Durban, Harare and Lisbon. They have a comprehensive domestic route which is good considering the roads in Mozambique are quite poor and it's a big country.

    • Air Namibia flies to several international destinations including London and Frankfurt. Regionally the airline doesn't venture north of Zimbabwe but you can get good connections to Cape Town, Victoria Falls and Luanda. I've flown them a few times and they're excellent.
