Several More Carriers of Africa

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Written by Charlie Dolan

I have several more air carriers from the African continent, which I had not featured before, as well as a recently acquired metal cap badge of Royal Air Maroc. In many cases, I have either the wing or hat badge of the airline rather than a full set of insignia.  In the case of South African Airlines, several different sets of insignia were issued over the course of many years and represent eras during and after the country’s membership in the British Commonwealth. Several of the SAA variants include the insignia worn by engineer staff. The dates which I have indicated are approximations, if anyone has more accurate information, please share with me.

GI GIB 1960 – 2002

Royal Air Maroc AT RAM 1957 – present

Royal Swazi National Airways ZC RSN 1978 – 1999

South African Airways SA SAA 1934 – present
