Moremi Air deeply regrets to inform you that on Friday October 14, their caravan aircraft had a fatal accident.
6 passengers were killed. There are 4 survivors, 2 were retained with minor injuries in Maun, and 2 airlifted yesterday to Johannesburg.
The pilot was also killed. He was the company’s General Manager, our most seasoned pilot with over 12,000 hours flying experience.
The company has chosen to ground its fleet for at least the next 2 days while we absorb this tragedy.
The accident is under full investigation and we are cooperating with all authorities.
We are extremely grateful to all government officials and the community of Maun who assisted us yesterday.
We are lost for words, for condolence for the families of the deceased and the pilots family.
