Over the past twenty-seven years, Air 2000 has become a by-word in the African hunting
industry. In this time, more hunters have flown with Air 2000 than with any other
charter company on the continent - the result of excellent service, a defined marketing
strategy, and an understanding of the traveling hunter's needs.
Our mission is to continue building on that success, consolidating our position as
the natural choice for the discerning sportsman.
Founded in 1981, Air 2000 (Pty) Ltd is a Non-Scheduled Air Services Licence holder,
authorized by the South African Civil Aviation Authority to operate aircraft for
charter services. The company has a variety of aircraft in its fleet, and can offer
cost-effective options for flights throughout Africa.
For many years, Air 2000 has actively pursued the US and European leisure hunting
markets, establishing alliances with operators throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and
traveling regularly to conventions in the US to promote air charter as a safe, cost-effective
and convenient travel option for visiting hunters.
In 1989, Air 2000 launched the "Hunters' Support" service, to provide hunters with
a comprehensive range of services that ensured a smooth arrival in Africa, a trouble-free
transfer to the hunting camp, pre- and post-hunt travel arrangements, and a comfortable
departure at the end of the hunt. The service includes the arrangement of Firearm
Import Permits, meet and greet services at Johannesburg's OR Tambo International
Airport, road airport / hotel transfers, and, of course, air charter services.
We are based at Lanseria Airport, Africa's busiest and most dynamic airport. It is
home to the largest collection of corporate aircraft on the continent, and has a
significant maintenance infrastructure. We also operate from Johannesburg's OR Tambo
International Airport and Cape Town International Airport and licensed to fly to
any destination in Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands.
