Altair Charters

Binga, Chewore, Chirundu, Kanyemba, Kariba Town, Mana Pools, Matusadona, Sapi

Altair offers air charters and transfers using three Cessna 206's and a Piper Navajo which is a twin engine aircraft.

The flying is done with four experienced pilots, all of whom are professionally trained to Commercial Pilot standards with Instrument ratings. The operation is small and we try to maintain a personal, quiet and professional service. We like to meet all clients as they arrive off their international flights (day time) and escort them through the formalities; likewise on their return, we escort them through the booking in.

We will fly within Zimbabwe to all areas, including the remoter parts of the Zambezi Valley and the South-East Lowveld.  We also fly regionally to Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Namibia. Within reason, pilots can stay with aircraft during a charter, for a few days at a time. We concentrate on private charters, though do entertain a certain amount of seat rate flying in the peak season to contain fees.

The aircraft are maintained to top standards and are kept in excellent condition.

Missed connections and changed flight details are understood and we will do our utmost to accommodate these problems.

I flew twice with Altair in July 2019. From Vic falls to Mana Pools and from Mana Pools to Harare. What a completely different experience to last year flying the same routes with a competitor. Altair's schedules were spot on, the aeroplane (Piper) in fabulous condition and the flights fantastic. I was the only one on the flight to Mana Pools. Adam, my pilot, was friendly, professional and a pleasure to fly with. Despite the glitch of landing at Mana West instead of the scheduled Mana Main (Adam was only advised Mana Main was closed when flying over Kariba!), I was comfortable and relaxed throughout. The change of flight plan didn't phase Adam, he waited with me for my transfer to John's camp to arrive before heading off. Both flights were an absolute delight and I would fly Altair again, and again, and again. I definitely recommend this company for any charter flight. 10 out of 10 for customer experience.

We flew twice with Altair in September 2015 - from Harare to Mana Pools and then from Mana Pools to Victoria Falls. I cannot recommend Altair highly enough - during the booking process all communication was clear and efficient. When it came to flying, everything was a breeze. The schedules were stuck to, the planes were well maintained, the pilot was always pleasant and the flights were smooth and uneventful. I would have no hesitation in flying Altair again and in recommending them to potential clients.

Altair met and flew us from Harare International Airport to Kariba and then from Mana Pools to Harare. The support team and pilots were really friendly, professional and hospitable. The whole operation ran like fine Swiss clockwork. The flights, take offs and landings were superb. As a normally rather nervous flyer I cannot recommend more highly this superb operation. Thank you guys. You certainly reflect well all that is great about a vacation in Zimbabwe.
