New Domestic Airline Fly Go Air Launching

Fly Go Air is a new domestic airline that will soon be launching in South Africa. It’s planned first flight is on the 26 November – so just about 1 month away. This first flight will be from Lanseria to Kruger International Airport (KMIA). The price will apparently be R999 one way all inclusive. Other routes planned from Lanseria include Polokwane, Pietermaritzburg, Cape Town, Bloemfontein and George. The airline is planning on going live (which is when tickets will most likely be available, on next week (22 October). Given the fact that Velvet Sky never lasted more than a year, can Fly Go Air make it? Well, the one two things they seem to have going for it, is firstly that they are not a low cost airline, and so can charge more for the tickets, and secondly, that they are initially staying away from the golden triangle of JHB-CPT-DUR, which is highly competitive. Good luck to them.
