Hi there,

You can compare the flight price on skyscanner.net and you will have many options there.

Good luck!

I'm Australian and have lived in Madagascar for many years. I've done the trip from Oz to Mada scores of times. The options are:

Air Mauritius used to be the cheapest option via Mauritius (they fly out of Melbourne and sometimes Sydney) and you can find their website easily. From Mauritius to Madagascar you fly with either Air Mauritius or Air Madagascar to Antananarivo.

You can also fly to Bangkok with whoever and then fly from Bangkok to Madagascar direct with Air Madagascar, or with other airlines via Nairobi.

THe cheapest option when I researched this last month was via South Africa with South African Airlines. From Sydney to Perth with Virgin and then Perth to Johannesburg with SAA and then on to Madagascar with SAA came in at around $2,300 return. That was the cheapest price I found.

I tried skyscanner and it did not find any of the cheap flights...

Brett, I find mixed reviews of the African air carriers, particularly Kenya airways. Have you flown with South Africa airways? I'd be interested to know what they're like

South African Airways is good, I never had any complains. Aircrafts are good, staff are friendly and the connection in JNB is usually hassle free. It's my airline of choice to leave/enter Madagascar since the flight arrives during the course of the day and it's not a big plane ( meaning less line up at customs ).

I often use Ortbiz.com to check fares & itineraries.
