South Africa: Low-cost carrier FlySafair launched ticket sales

(update 08 Oct 2013): FlySafair just announced via Twitter that contrary to their expectations, the court today granted an interim interdict against FlySafair, so that the airline won’t be starting operations immediately. The court ordered Comair to accommodate FlySafair passengers by honouring their ticket prices & dates of travel as agreed to with FlySafair.

South African air logistics and specialised air services company Safair today launched the website and ticket sales for its new low-cost airline FlySafair. The airline is the newest
entrant to the low cost air travel market in South Africa and will initially be flying between Johannesburg and Cape Town. FlySafair, which is going to offer up to ten daily flights between the two destinations, will have its maiden flight on 17 October 2013. The airline will operate Boeing 737-400s with a seating capacity of 165 passengers. Plans are already underway to quickly expand the airlines's network. We'll keep you posted!
