A to Z: A is for…

Some other volunteers have done this; Creating an A to Z of things they can think of from their experience in Malawi. It’s just a slightly more organised a way to make a few memoirs. So, A is for…


One of the two main mobile telecoms providers here in Malawi. The other being TNM. Having an Airtel sim card means your number will start with 09-. As opposed to TNM’s 08-.

Here are some daily routines I’ll miss when I am no longer reliant on Airtel… damn USSD codes!

  • *136*PINcode# = Top-up
  • *137# = Check balance
  • *301*BundlePrice# = Buy (“3.75G”) data bundle
  • *304# = Check data bundle balance
  • *444*BundlePrice# = Buy international talk time bundle
