If you thought the FlySafair prices above were already hard to beat, think again. Fly Safair specials are available through their annual mega sale (also known as “FlySafair’s crazy flight sale”) as well as other seasonal offers.
You might have heard about the ridiculous offer to sell tickets for as little as R8! That’s right, R8 for a single one-way ticket. To gain access to these specials you will generally need to go through the FlySafair website - but tickets are limited.
In 2023, there were 30,000 tickets bought online during this special. The sale started in the morning and was sold out midway through the day.
If you weren’t fortunate enough to benefit from these Fly Safair specials in the past, keep an eye open for any future offers. If you need to book a flight today, at least you will still be able to book the same tickets using our SAA booking system.

On 17 November 2017, FlySafair announced a possible merger with SA Airlink. The merger has been rejected by the Competition Commission as it is said to threaten low-cost carrier competition in SA.
Both airlines plan to oppose the outcome of the commission's findings. The outcome of regulatory approval for this merger was planned for the first quarter of 2018. However, the outcome was upheld, and by November 2018, the merger plans were scrapped entirely.
