Air Malawi (QM) Flight schedules

Air Malawi Limited is an airline based in Blantyre, Malawi. It is the national airline of Malawi, wholly owned by the Malawi government and operates regional passenger services. Its main base is Chileka International Airport, Blantyre, with a hub at Lilongwe International Airport.

The airline first operated in 1964 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Central African Airways. After the dissolution of CAA in 1967, the responsibility for all flights passed onto the three now independent airlines, of which Air Malawi became independent, and became the national airline of Malawi. The late 1960s and early 1970s saw the fleet being modernised and standardised.Since 2000, the Malawian government has attempted on two occasions to privatise the airline unsuccessfully. The first attempt in 2003 failed because of the successful bidder, in partnership with South African Airways, being unable to post a security bond. The second attempt in 2007 failed after disagreements over the terms with the bidder, Comair of South Africa.In August 2009, it was announced that Air Malawi was in negotiations with Zambezi Airlines for a strategic partnership.
