New air routes are being opened into Madagascar allowing better access to areas of the nation besides the capital, Antananarivo. You can already fly directly into Tana from Paris, Marseille, Istanbul, Nairobi, Johannesburg, Addis Ababa, Mauritius, Reunion, and the Comores. Nosy Be, Sainte Marie and Toamasina also have direct services from overseas.
In December a new service will commence, linking Reunion with Tolanaro and Toliara. This opens up southern Madagascar to many more travellers and is great news for a part for the country that is definitely worth discovering. Jointly operated under the new sharing arrangements between Air Madagascar and Air Austral this will be a twice weekly service.
