FlySafair granted domestic air service licence

The Air Services Licensing Council (ASLC) has granted FlySafair a domestic air service licence for the operation of domestic scheduled flights. The new low-cost was forced to restructure its ownership when its launch was stopped by a complaint from two rivals that its ownership did not meet the required 75% of the company to be domestically owned.

FlySafair restructured its shareholding by giving its South African employees a 25.14% stake in the company.

Despite FlySafair not having been operational since October 2013, the airline retained the services of all the employees who were hired 10 months ago.

“This demonstrates our commitment not only to job creation, but also sends a clear message that FlySafair is here for the long run. We are eager to provide South Africans with an alternate low cost airline that is dedicated to offering competitive and sustainable fares between Johannesburg and Cape Town. The FlySafair team looks forward to our passengers putting our promise of affordability and exceptional service to the test,” says Dave Andrew, CEO of Safair.

“Having now received our new schedule passenger licence, we are currently evaluating our options for the re-launch of FlySafair. Dates for the launch flight and ticket sales will be announced in due course.”
