I may be flying Antanarivo-Jo'burg next week, on an SA flight tagged as "operated by 4Z SA Airlink" - it's shown as operated with a 737-200 aircraft, so I'm wondering whose aircraft is it ? Is it an ex Air Madagascar aircraft ?

Any info gratefully received.

I believe it's Inter Air. Inter Air and SA have a partnership on a few routes but I have no idea why it'd be branded as SA Airlink.

I thought that too, but the SA Airlink website seems to indicate a joint or shared operation with Air Madagascar. I know D6 had similar arrangements before with MD, but the D6 code no longer appears on any flight between JNB and TNR, so maybe things changed. I'm confused (my brain hurts !)

Incidentally the airline is now known just as as Airlink.

Don;'t know where the 4Z comes from, they still have SA flight numbers.

The 732 is probably ex-SAA, there are several kicking around, some in service with SA Express.



After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

4Z is SA Airlinks carrier code - the TNR-JNB is SA8something something, but with a franchise/codeshare disclosure of 4Z ie. Airlink. 4Z goes back to when SA Airlink (as was) operated it's own flights before it became an SA franchise.

Thanks for the info, anyway - it will be fun to fly on an SAA 732 again - for a long time it has been my most flown carrier/aircraft combination (29 times), but BA 757 is catching up (25 times - BORING !)

The South African Express B737 (ZS-SIO) is operated by Safair;

Safair have several B737s available, so they could easily be operating another aircraft for Airlink...
