FlySafair to open its second base


On 3 December, FlySafair, the latest South African low-cost airline, will launch its second base, at Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport, allowing passengers to fly from Johannesburg to George and Port Elizabeth, from as little as $50 one way.

The airline currently operates return flights from Cape Town to Johannesburg, George and Port Elizabeth.

Based on international best practices, the airline offers passengers a base fare which secures them a seat to their destination, along with two carry-on items weighing no more than seven kilograms. Any additional checked-in luggage, along with the option to pre-select preferential seats or extra-space seats such as those in the front rows or at emergency exits, as well as onboard catering, will be charged for according to passengers’ specific needs.
