This was my first experience of flying with this South African low-cost airline, on the recommendation of friends and a colleague that were familiar with it. The entire experience is seamlessly integrated, from booking online, receiving a receipt via email and being able to check in online 24 hours prior to the scheduled flight and getting an e-boarding pass on...

I have always been put off because there are so many extra charges with this airline. I took it because I had no luggage and the flight was comfortable and staff pleasant.

My work required me to travel with the national carrier SAA or Mango at all times. Well recently on a personal trip I flew SAFAIR and they literally blew me away. Efficient, customer focused and friendly staff. My only other cpomparison was Mango but the latter does not come near in both prices and service. SAFAIR’s planes may not be...

All good, from priority boarding, check-in easy. Quick boarding. The seats are really tight, but that's probably what you expect from cheap airline.

FlySafair trumpet the fact that they are one of the most on-time airlines in the world - if not the most. And it's true. Online check-in is easy, very small queue at the airport, friendly, efficient staff, and a no hassle, pleasant flight. Flying within South Africa, FlySafair is always my first choice.

Back in Jan, google result for FlySafair returns almost no results. I was kind of nervous that I got a bogus flight or something. Luckily the airlines does exist. Check in was a breeze (i had a check in luggage) and the flight was uneventful, well except for the enthusiast crew during safety presentation and during drinks/meal serving (you have...

Upon arrival at Durban airport on 20 Aug, passengers were informed that Flight FA 273 had been delayed by approx 30 minutes. Another 30 minutes later we were again informed of a further delay. The total delay was approx two hours. During the flight the captain...
