CemAir is a privately owned scheduled and non-scheduled domestic and international aviation company that is based at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.
Destinations served domestically include Bloemfontein, Cape Towm, George, Margate, Plettenberg Bay and Sishen.
CemAir operates services to popular tourist destinations and important business towns and leases aircraft to other airlines across Africa and the Middle East. Based in Johannesburg, CemAir was formed in 2005 with the purpose of operating turboprop commuter aircraft. The initial fleet consisted of 1 Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft and 3 Beechcraft 1900C aircraft.
CemAir has since evolved into a specialised aircraft leasing company offering turboprop and jet aircraft to a variety of operators throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and the Indian Ocean islands as well as a significant operator of scheduled regional services within South Africa. CemAir has one primary hub in Johannesburg at OR Tambo International Airport, in addition they have 4 additional secondary hubs located in Gaborone, Juba, Lusaka and Bamako. The reason behind the secondary hubs is due to a large portion of the fleet being deployed outside of South Africa. The aircraft periodically rotate back to base for selected inspections.
The airline operates a fleet of small aircraft, with a limited number of passengers. The airline is dedicated to providing low-cost by high-value travel. All passengers are entitled to one piece of carry-on luggage, but checked baggage limitations and conditions vary by route.
