An Air Malawi Boeing 737-200, flight QM-201 from Blantyre (Malawi) to Johannesburg (South Africa) with 78 passengers, was climbing out of Blantyre about 20 minutes into the flight when the crew received a smoke indication and returned to Blantyre for a safe landing about 40 minutes after departure. The airline denied rumours of an inflight engine fire circulating in Malawi and said the crew received a smoke indication that was faulty. The aircraft was examined and departed again for Johannesburg. Air Malawi resumed flights to Johannesburg end of March 2012 after leasing a Boeing 737-200 from Star Air Cargo in.
