History[edit]

The airline was set to start service in 1997, though as of 1998, service had not yet started. The airline had difficulty in obtaining loans to purchase two Fokker F28-Mark 3000 from Australia. Destinations to be served from Windhoek were Johannesburg and Cape Town.[1] As of 1999, the airlines were to be sent to Kalahari Express Airlines.[2]
