Société Nationale Malgache de Transports Aériens, operating as Air Madagascar, is the national airline of Madagascar. Founded in 1962, the carrier is based at Ivato International Airport, Antananarivo and operates an extensive domestic network as well as scheduled international services to Europe, Asia and neighbouring African and Indian Ocean island destinations. Over recent years the airline has been a subject of failed privatisation measures. These are now on hold and the airline is majority owned by the Madagascar government.

Air Seychelles, which has reported its second consecutive year of losses in the FY2010/2011 period, has embarked on a restructuring programme under its new CEO. The carrier is crucial to the Seychelles’ tourism industry and has a renewed focus on the sector. Over half of all air arrivals reach the country on Air Seychelles flights, but the carrier has been struggling in recent years from high fuel prices and rising competition, particularly from Middle Eastern network carriers.
Improving connectivity to Europe is important as most of the island nation’s tourism comes from France, the UK, and as of 2009, Russia. Developing new source markets is vital but has proven difficult, as seen through Air Seychelles’ continuing attempts to establish an Asian hub.
Air Seychelles’ new CEO, Bram Steller, took office on 01-Oct-2011, replacing Maurice Loustau-Lalanne. Mr Steller is the carrier's fourth CEO in as many years.
Air Mauritius made a profit in FY2011, showing a distinct improvement from a EUR6.2 million net loss in FY2010 to a EUR10.3 million net profit for the 12 months to 31-Mar-2011. As the largest of the four national carriers in the 'Vanilla Islands Tourism Group', which includes Air Seychelles, Air Austral (Reunion), Air Madagascar and Comores Aviation International, the carrier is attempting to diversify its network through new services to China and increased capacity to India.
