Skywise Airlines:

Skywise Airlines looks set to take to the skies in the first quarter of 2014 All rights reserved., thanks to a deal that saw the founders of the now defunct low cost carrier One Time Airlines acquire 100% of Global Airways, a British Virgin Islands based airline company with assets worth more than R30 million. Skywise and Comair have been actively opposing FlySafair's entry into the South African industry, however the latter seems to have overcome their legal challenges and will soon be injecting even more competition into the cheap airlines space.


FlySafair's entry into the South African airlines industry got off to a rocky start in 2013, with the airline hitting legal and licensing obstacles relating to their ownership structures. According to IOL Travel, however, the requirement for 75% local ownership was met in December 2013. FlySafair had to reapply for their operating licence, which means that the airline will in all likelihood only resume flights during the first quarter of 2014 All rights reserved.
