Meet and wheelchair assistance is provided by ‘FlySafair’ staff from check-in counters, to and from the aircraft to the arrival hall. Passengers may use their own approved aviation oxygen and should check the website for applicable portable oxygen concentrators that are allowed.

Doing their utmost to maintain low-cost airfares, FlySafair stopped their Cape Town/George flights just for winter and will recommence this route from 10th December 2015. As stated by CEO Elmar Conradie: “It does not make business sense for us to continue operations during the winter months if we want to manage our costs and continue to provide our passengers with the lowest fares in the market.” A decision such as this only proves that FlySafair is seriously dedicated to remaining in the sky with continued affordable prices for passengers.

Flysafair Airlines Reviews

Review by Bernice Conway: “Last month, I used a FlySafair flight from Cape Town to Johannesburg for a business tour. I was really impressed by the spacious seating on the 737-800, smooth boarding and great service onboard from pleasant and helpful staff. As I booked earlier, I got chance to book flight tickets at very affordable prices. FlySafair is the best choice for flight journeys in South Africa.” Rating: 5/5

Review by Marc Hunwick: “I have recently travelled with FlySafair from Johannesburg to Cape Town. I had used a web portal to book flight tickets to Cape Town, which was offering 20% discount on booking flight deals. I found it a fair deal. It was short journey which took less than two hours. The inflight entertainment was good and also the seating arrangement was comfortable. The check-in was slow but overall it was a nice experience to use FlySafair airline services.” Rating: 4/5

Review by Dianna Goodwin: “This was my first flight with FlySafair, where most of my previous flights have been with Kulula. It’s safe to say that I was very happy with the flight – with the entire experience. I flew from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. Again, Fly Safair, like Kulula, is no-frills, so you have to purchase food and refreshment onboard, both of which is keenly priced and good value for money. Boarding was a breeze – swift, no delays at all. Seating width is fine, though the legroom isn’t quite enough, to be honest. Same with all the no-frills though – they like to pile you on and pile you in. Baggage collection on arrival at CPT was also swift. All-in-all, a good experience and I’ll definitely fly with this airline again in future.” Overall rating: 4.5/5.

Review by Michael Sneldon: “To begin with, in my review of this airline, I would like to point out that the baggage claim is super-fast. A definite plus going on here! Flight attendants are um, attentive. The seating was okay, though, as others have stated before me, there’s not quite enough legroom. That’s one thing about no-frills – never enough legroom, not when you’re about 6 foot. It’s fine if you are 5 foot 5 or somebody pretty small-size, but this legroom thing really irks me. Seating width is fine though, providing you’re not particularly large around the mid-riff area. I’d fly FlySafair again – but please, do something about the cramped seating.” Overall rating: 4/5.

Review by Derek MacDonald: “Let’s begin with the online booking for FlySafair – it’s good – easy to add on extras if you so wish to. Boarding is smooth, and has been every time I have flown with this airline, which is about 20 times now. I do note though that the new planes are not as comfy as the older planes. Legroom issue once more. Not enough of it on the new planes, quite enough of it on the older fleet. Bring back the older fleet style, in my view. I tend to book well in advance of my flight so I generally get a great price on tickets. Another commendation for Fly Safair.” Overall rating: 4.5/5.

Review by Sheila Caldwell: “First time I’ve flown with FlySafair and it was a joy! I took a return trip between OR Tambo and George. First off, booking and boarding was simplistic and a breeze. I’d read some previous reviews and was not too sure that the staffing would be up to much, but that was not the case. They were pleasant, attentive, and warm. I guess it comes down to the luck of the draw with the staffing issue. Another thing that I took delight from was that there was none of those long-winded announcements with respect to turning your electrical gear off. That’s become so old-hat. Enough already. The aircraft was a little worn, but it was clean and well-kept, so there’s no downside here. I’d certainly fly with FlySafair again, and have already booked a flight – a very affordable flight, too – for next month.” Overall rating: 5/5.

Review by Graham Burrows: “I booked my Flysafair flight through domestic flights South Africa. I got a great deal on my flight prices. The only issue I have with Flysafair advertising the lower prices is that the baggage charge is actually an additional cost whereas other airlines include this in the price. Other than that my flight was pleasant and on time. Not a bad experience with Flysafair all round.” Rating: 4/5

Review by James Mulrooney: “I was on the Cape Town to Johannesburg return in early May with FlySafair. It’s relatively new to the internal flights scene, and came in at around half the price of its rival, Kulula, for this particular flight. Nicely speedy web booking process as well as good online check-in. Ground and onboard staff were excellent – efficient and helpful. In fact, everything was quick, it was easy, and it was efficient. Seating was comfortable, too, which is always a big plus, even for the shorter flight.” Rating 5/5.

Review by Michelle Young: “Pretty new to low cost South Africa-bound flights, FlySafair provided me with a good all-round experience. The online booking is fast and trouble-free, though you do have to purchase checked-in baggage allowance, which can be had for R150 for up to 20kg, providing you book online or get in touch with the call centre. That’s not bad, given that the price of the FlySafair flights is so competitive. The staff were efficient and friendly, while seating is relatively spacious and reasonably comfortable. The aircraft I flew on, which I believe was a Boeing 700-400, was a bit dated, but still clean and in good nick. Departure and arrival were on time and a very good experience overall.” Rating: 5/5.

Review by Roy Fredericks: “Flew on a Boeing 737-400 at economy rating from Johannesburg to Cape Town in late May this year. First up, I liked the booking experience with FlySafair and they do allow for additional baggage allowance to be purchased, which is more than can be said for many low-cost airlines these days (which is a money-making exercise on their part). Found the seating to be spacious enough and reasonably comfortable for a shorter flight. Staff were well versed and friendly. The flight was timely, and I didn’t have to wait long to collect my baggage. The aircraft was a little on the old side, but it didn’t impact the general quality of the experience. I’d certainly fly again with FlySafair.” Overall rating: 4.5/5.

Review by Martha Jones: “I did the CPT to JNB in March, 2016 and found everything about the FlySafair flight to be a positive experience. Good online booking service and extras can be added if required, though I had only carry-on baggage. The boarding process was smooth, and onboard service was very positive and attentive. I’ve found that with the older fleet there’s more legroom than with the newer, and that’s not a good thing, given that overall, people tend to be getting taller. Long-haul flights on these aircraft are not going to be overly comfortable. On the other hand, the pricing is extremely competitive, particularly so if you can book nicely in advance.” Overall rating: 5/5.
