The new routes allow us to bring low cost flights to a bigger audience, but they also help us to improve efficiencies in terms of aircraft utilisation which helps to keep fares as low as possible,” said FlySafair’s Kirby Gordon.
This follows on an earlier announcement in September that the airline has increased frequencies on some of its major routes due to the normal higher demand over the peak travel period in December and January. The airline increased services on the Lanseria to George and Johannesburg to East London routes to daily over the period.There will also be additional flights on the Johannesburg and George as well as Johannesburg to Cape Town, Johannesburg to Port Elizabeth, Cape Town to East London, Cape Town to Port Elizabeth as well as between Cape Town and Durban.
In addition to increasing frequencies, FlySafair also in September announced that it will add aircraft to its fleet. The carrier acquired two additional Boeing 737-400s and will take delivery of a third Boeing 737-400 before the end of the year. This will bring FlySafair’s fleet to 11 aircraft, making it the second largest low-cost carrier in SA in terms of aircraft.
