Corporate Office: Johannesburg Airport, South Africa
FlySafair is South Africa’s True Low-Cost Airline servicing a full domestic schedule including flights between Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, East London and George.
The airline’s aim was to become South Africa’s favourite airline by providing a low-fare, hassle-free, and on-time travel experience. While not resting on its laurels, FlySafair has certainly achieved its aims, bringing air travel to a huge number of South African’s who could otherwise not afford to fly.
For two consecutive seasons FlySafair has been named the ‘Most On-time Airline in the World’ by air travel intelligence specialist, OAG. FlySafair was also named ‘Best Airline Africa and Indian Ocean’ in the 2018 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice™ awards for Airlines and also won the Best Economy Class award in the same region.
Success came too when FlySafair won the ‘Best Low-Cost Carrier’ award at every airport to which it operates in this year’s Airport Company South Africa’s (ACSA’s) annual excellence awards ceremony, the Feather Awards.
Launched in October 2014 the fledgling airline became profitable in just its second year of operation despite a tough trading environment, with low economic growth and an over-supply of seats on domestic routes.

FlySafair boasts a full IOSA safety accreditation, the IATA Operational Safety Audit that represents the foremost measure of global airline safety.
