Flysafair Launches

Flysafair has just announced that they will be operating commercial flights between Johannesburg and Cape Town (up to 10 flights per day) starting in September. Their website can be found here The company initially started with offering aircraft leasing, maintenance and charter services. However other airlines would use them (unbranded planes) when they had one of their planes out due to being serviced, or when airlines needed to take on additional capacity. This means that basically the management team behind have quite a few years experience in the South African airline industry, unlike a few other low cost airlines that paunched in the recent past but failed to sustain themselves. Overall, we wish flysafair the best of luck and the more airlines we have operating here, the better for the consumer and for competition.
