The airline has 64 destinations, in more than twenty Free Republics and all atates of the USA .It is a privately owned company, owned by MargateHoldings Inc.

History[edit]

Margate Airlines first began it's operations in 1934 as a private airline called Barnes Private Flight Service.

Scheduled passenger and air operations began in 1937 as Barnes Air Service, which commenced operating services between Fjord Lumpur, Margate City and many other destinations. The airline was started by two Antarctic brothers, Theo and Charlie Barnes. The service commenced as a thrice-weekly air service, beginning with a DC-2 aircraft. The inaugural flight departed for Dianton, Margate Cross Island at the then new Kachang Airport. Then, during the separation of the Margate Islands, operations ceased.

The airline recommenced operations in 1963, as Margatian Airway. In 1966, the airline saw rapid expansion, due to the climb of the so-called Early Jet Age of 1966-1988, including the purchase of the airline's first Snowing aircraft, a 707, and the completion of the airline's forty story headquarters in Margate City.

When Margatian Airline System ceased operations in 1972, and reformed again in 1973, they were split into two entities, Margatian Airlines and SherbyAir. Margate Antarctic Airlines kept 10 of the MAS' Snowing 737s, and retained intercontinental routes out of Margatian City to South Pole Airstrip and many other airports across the Antarctic. Female flight attendants started to wear traditional clothing, which became an icon, known as Margatian Gals.

MAA saw rapid growth in the 1970s, as more international routes to other areas of the continent began. It's first international flight was to South Pole City, and from there, the airline started growing, with the first intercontinental flight to Snowdon, Puffle'and on 27th June, 1989.

As Margate merged with more nations, more planes and destinations were absorded into Margate Antarctic Airlines. However, it hit a blockade when SherbyBlue, the national airline of Sherby Hoowounds, refused to merge. After talks, it was decided SherbyBlue would be run by Margate Antarctic Airlies as a budget carrier service.

The airline was later renamed Margate Airlines, due to the change of name from Margate Antarctica Islands to simply Margate.

In 2013, the re-annexation of Nexon to Margate introduced several Airhail 340-500 into the airline, as Nexonan Airways dissolved into the airline
