South African Domestic Airlines Bookings

The domestic airlines market in South Africa has historically not been kind to newcomers. With the likes of nationwide airlines, Sun Air, Velvet Sky and 1 Time all going under whilst trying to offer the cheapest domestic flights in South Africa.

This failure is a result of anti-competitive behaviour by South African Airways. However, cheap flights are still available on some low cost airlines in South Africa. Below is a quick overview of your key air travel options in the South African domestic flights market:

South African Airways Flights

FlySAA is the best option for the greatest range of domestic destinations and highest frequency of scheduled flights from multiple airports. As South Africa and Africa's top airline, South African Airways facilitates business and trade across the continent and internationally.

As a fully state owned entity, the airline has enjoyed significant financial support and market protection from the SA government, making it very difficult for new low cost airlines to enter the marketplace.

Compare and book your SAA flights online now, or find out more about the other cheap SA Airlines below. Alternatively, you can also visit the official FlySAA website at

Mango Flights

As the low cost subsidiary to SAA, Mango Airlines has been able to offer South African air travellers consistently cheap airfares since 2006. It has also been instrumental in preventing players like 1Time Airline and Velvet Sky from gaining significant traction or maintaining profitability over time.

If you want to see the cheapest flights in South Africa, use the above flight search engine and check out the Mango flights prices, in particular.

Kulula Flights

Another low cost carrier to book cheap flights with in South Africa is Kulula, a subsidiary of British Airways South Africa. Kulula Airlines is the only low cost airline to have survived the domestic market price wars, offering South Africans a welcome alternative to the two state owned airlines.

The quirky humour you receive from the airline's staff is the best you can get while up in the sky and is another great reason to book cheap flights with this airline.

Fastjet Flights

While air travellers in South Africa had high hopes for East African Fastjet Airlines to enter the core domestic flights market, complications around ownership and licensing has seen the airline focus more on its East African operations for the time being.

Fastjet does fly to Johannesburg from Zimbabwe, however, they're currently not running any other significant domestic services within SA.
