Founded in 1997 by Mike and An Kalaitzakis, with operations having begun in early 1998, Air Excel is one of Tanzania's owner run and operated air charter companies.

Since its inception and subsequent growth, Air Excel still maintains the owner run and operated philosophy of pulling out all stops for personalized friendly and efficient service.
