FlySafair, one of South Africa’s successful privately owned airlines, has yesterday confirmed that they will launch flights from Johannesburg to Harare and Windhoek in Q3 this year. This follows the approval of the airline’s application by the South African Air Services Council.
Flights to Zanzibar, already operating under a charter deal, are also included in the approvals and more flights are planned by FlySafair already from Q2 onwards.
The airline was also granted additional frequencies between South Africa and Mauritius, eventually allowing for daily flights.
In a related development did Air Mauritius only recently confirm that they will relaunch their services, initially twice a week, between Cape Town and Port Louis / Mauritius.
Following the demise of low fare airlines like Kulula and the halt of operations byCOMAIR and SAA have privately owned airlines like FlySafair and Airlink made major inroads in the networks of the national airline.
