South African low-cost airline FlySafair has opened ticket sales between Cape Town and Johannesburg as well as between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. The first flight between Cape Town and Johannesburg is set for 16 October 2014, while flights between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth will commence on 30 October 2014. FlySafair will charge passengers a base rate which secures a seat on the flight, and allows travellers two pieces of free carry-on luggage (one bag and one personal item) weighing no more than 7kg in total. The airline operates Boeing 737-400's with a seating capacity of 165 passengers per aircraft.
FlySafair first opened ticket sales for flights between Johannesburg and Cape Town in September 2014. The maiden flight was scheduled for 17 October 2013. Just days before the first flight, the High Court of South Africa granted an interim court order preventing the airline from starting operations, following an application by rival carriers.
