FlySafair (IATA: FA) is the latest low cost airline to enter the South African air travel market, and are firmly committed to changing the face of flying in SA. Offering flights at super affordable rates, and with air tickets going on sale on 29 July 2014, the new low cost carrier brings South Africans a welcome respite from the rising flight prices that characterised the post 1time Airlines period.Their flights took off on 16 October 2014, and the airline has been launching additional routes into 2015.
Operated by Safair Operations (Pty) Ltd, FlySafair will operate 60 S0A flights per week, initially on the Cape Town to Johannesburg flight route. FlySafair's Elmar Conradie has been quoted saying that the airline does, however, aim to expand its flight routes once they've established themselves in the South African domestic flights market.
The airline believes that having another choice in the low cost flights market will drive down costs even further, giving South African travellers a better deal and stimulating the part of the domestic travel market that became stagnant with the demise of 1time Airlines.
With nearly 50 years of avation experience, the airline aims to provide air travelers with an affordable, on-time flying experience.
According to CEO Dave Andrew, the airline is 75% owned by South African business interests, with the Irish ASL Aviation Group owning the remaining 25%.
While the airline has already obtained its commercial flight operating license, the road to the airline's launch has not been without obstacles. Comair objected to the issuing of FlySafair's license, among other reasons due to his dual citizenship. The challenge was recently overcome, with FlySafair employees owning an effective 25.14% of the company's shares via an Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP).
FlySafair currently flies between Cape Town and Johannesburg, and also flies to George and Port Elizabeth on a regular basis.
FlySafair currently operate scheduled passenger utilising a fleet of two Boeing 737-400s, each capable of carrying 165 passengers. These aircraft are super safe and reliable, and are used by many other prominent South African airlines.
