✅ Trip Verified | Flew FlySafair from Johannesburg to Cape Town. Very basic airline, pay for everything. I often find cheaper flights with other low cost airlines in South Africa of whom I get much better service. Great airline when traveling on a tight budget and only with hand luggage, but if you're looking for comfort and ser...

✅ Trip Verified | Having needed to book last-minute, we were very pleased to find that FlySafair had reasonable fares a few hours before departure. Flew from Cape Town to Johannesburg. The experience started at check-in, unfortunately the priority queue was slower than the normal queue due to passengers being let forward due to ...

✅ Trip Verified | I sat in Seat 3E, which is right behind the exit row seats. This is considered a premium seat which I paid for. As all frequent flyers know, the exit row needs to be kept clear and passengers normally would put their bags in the overhead bins for takeoff as per instructions. "Please place all bags in overhead b...

✅ Trip Verified | Johannesburg to George. I recommend to stay clear of FlySafair! After sitting at the airport for over 5 hours, we were told at 20h00 “the flight was cancelled”. We boarded the plane earlier and then was told to disembark after an hour. Many families with young children who did not live in Gauteng had to find a...

✅ Trip Verified | Cape Town to Johannesburg. I am disgusted at the service I received at Flysafair, I had booked my ticket through Travelstart and I was asked how many bags I would to pay for, I then paid for 3 bags when doing my booking considering the fact that I was booking 6 return flights, from Johannesburg to Cape Town an...

✅ Verified Review | I flew from Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg on 14 October 2017. Our plane hit a bird on departure from Port Elizabeth. It took them over 4 hours to get another plane to Port Elizabeth. Keep in mind its only an hour flight from Cape Town and a 1.5 hour flight from Johannesburg, they had some excuse as to why i...

✅ Verified Review | Last minute day trip from Johannesburg to Durban return. Very user friendly website meant that I selected the flights, booked, paid for, and checked in, all within 10 minutes. Prices were below competitors on this route. Both flights on time, aircraft was clean and crew seemed friendly enough. Did not order ...

✅ Verified Review | I read good reviews about this airline but was worried as it was very new to the market and one of the cheapest tickets I could find. What I found was a fantastically easy website to use on your mobile, upfront and clear charges, clean planes and very friendly airport staff. Also, as I was travelling with a ...

I was very impressed my FlySafair flight from Cape Town to Johannesburg. I was expecting it to be as uncomfortable as Kulula, but I was so impressed with the spacious seating on the 737 800. The crew were friendly and professional. They ran out of rolls which was all I could fault them on. The baggage arrived really quickly too,...

Every aspect of the trip could not have gone better. Easy to book online or add extras if needed and to check-in online. At the airport smooth boarding, great service onboard from pleasant and helpful staff. I did a day return from Cape Town to Johannesburg without luggage and on tome both ways. New plane going up, less comforta...

Durban to Cape Town with FlySafair. Was an excellent flight. Bought a special airfare of R399 to Cape Town. Was a little worried after reviews that I read. Staff were friendly and well mannered. Flight was on time. Check in was easy and quick. Will definitely use them again. Thank you Flysafair.

Cape Town to Johannesburg with FlySafair. Fairly new in the market for internal routes. Half the price of rival Kulula and as good if not better. Very easy and quick web booking and online check in. Great staff and service. No long winded announcements on turning electronic equipment off. Quick, easy, on time, efficient, pleasan...
