Find the cheapest flights from 1000s of airlines and travel agents


Gidon Novick and Global Aviation have joined forces just in time for the summer holidays in sunny South Africa. With their new airline, Lift, getting cheap flights from Johannesburg to Cape Town will be a breeze.

Novick is the former joint CEO of Comair and the person behind Kulula airlines. His experience in the world of planes has given him insights that should help the business soar. Lift might be a small airline with fewer planes, but this allows for greater efficiency, giving them a big advantage over the bigger airlines.

Coming up with the name for the airline was no small task. The new airline opened up the floor to the public and went through thousands of name suggestions for the company. These included suggestions like “Gravy Plane”, “Wakanda Air” and “Planey McPlaneface”.

In the end, eight different people suggested the name Lift. Their winning suggestion won them multiple domestic flights with the airline for a year! But they’re not the only ones who get to enjoy what Lift has to offer. From December 2020, Lift will be flying you and your family all around South Africa.

Created with customers in mind, Lift intends to help locals discover South Africa without breaking the bank. Due to the uncertainty of the airline industry at the moment, Lift will operate using a flexible business model. Inspired by Uber, their business will operate based on flight demand and popularity.

Currently, there isn’t much information on Lift’s flights, prices and planes but as soon as the information lands, we’ll add it to this page! But if you’re hungry for news, for the latest on all things Lift related, head to their website.
