Mack Air is a well established and respected air charter company that has been operating in northern Botswana for over 25 years. First established in 1994 by Stuart and Lara Mackay, both of whom had been working in the Okavango for a number of years before setting up the company.
The operation began with just one Cessna 206, A2-AKB. Lutz Gottschalk was the first pilot employed by Mack Air in July 1996 and by 1998 there was a small team of pilots undertaking daily flights into the Okavango.
Over the years, Mack Air has built up a reputation for offering a reliable, efficient and personable service with an emphasis on safety as a priority.
From its humble beginnings, based in a hot rustic shack, Mack Air has become the leading private air-transport service provider in Botswana operating a fleet of over 24 aircraft, with more than 35 pilots and a total staff compliment of over 100 personnel.
