IATA: n/a


Skywise was a South African domestic low-cost carrier based at Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International Airport. The carrier operated a fleet of Boeing 737-300 aircraft. Skywise is owned by South African private equity firm, Motlekar Holdings. The company acquired Skywise from Pak Africa Aviation in Sep-2016. 

In Dec-2015, Skywise was forced to suspend service operations, due to unpaid airport charges. The carrier was cleared by the air services licensing council, however, the resumption of air operations is subject to the airline making the appropriate payments. Skywise has confirmed it will suspend operations until further notice. Skywise launch a investor programme, as it sought funding from local investors. In Sep-2016, the private equity firm Motlekar Holdings acquired Skywise. The suspended carrier stated it plans to resume operations soon.
