Flights to Blantyre’s Chileka International Airport have been cancelled for the next two weeks while the runway is repaired. 

Kassim Geresu, CEO of Malawian Airlines confirms that flights to and from Blantyre have been cancelled until March 31. He advises travellers flying into the country to rather make use of Lilongwe International Airport during this time.  

Kenya Airways and SAA have also announced that they will be suspending direct flights between Nairobi and Blantyre, and Johannesburg and Blantyre during this time.

 KQ clients flying to Blantyre will be rerouted through Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe. 

“SAA passengers wanting to travel to Malawi via Lilongwe will be accommodated on our Lilongwe flights,” says SAA spokesperson, Tlali Tlali. “We will offer a full refund to and waive all penalties to SAA-ticketed passengers wishing to cancel their travel arrangement due to flight cancellations occasioned by the airport closure.”
