South African Domestic Airlines Bookings

The domestic airlines market in South African has historically not been kind to newcomers, with the likes of Nationwide Airlines, Sun Air, Velvet Sky and 1 Time all going under due to anti-competitive behaviour by South African Airways, in particular, whilst trying to offer the cheapest domestic flights South Africa. Below follows a quick overview of your key air travel options in the South African domestic flights market:

South African Airways Flights

Fly SAA for the greatest range of domestic destinations and highest frequency of scheduled flights. 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're looking for the cheapest flights in SA, use the above flight search engine and check out the Mango flights' prices, in particular..

Kulula Flights

Another low cost carrier to consider for cheap SA flights is, 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.

Fastjet Flights

While South African air travellers 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. While Fastjet does fly to Johannesburg, they're currently not running any other significant domestic services within SA.
