International Calling


With airtel, international direct dialling comes as standard. All airtel mobile phones are already set up to make international calls.

How to make an international call


Simply dial + (that's the Malawi international access code) followed by these codes in this order:

  • Destination country code
  • Area code
  • Telephone number

Here is an example of how you would make a call to Los Angeles, USA.

  • Dial: + (the international access code)
  • Dial: 1 (the country code for the USA)
  • Dial: 213 (the area code for Los Angeles)
  • Dial the telephone number of the person.
