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.
