Fares Fair Travel is now OPEN for your business travel bookings




Dear Customers,


After more than two months on the ground, we are thrilled to reach out to you with the news that we will be taking to the skies again on Monday, 15 June 2020.

We’d like to thank you for the patience you’ve had while we’ve been unable to operate, and for all the messages of support that you’ve shared with us on social media and other platforms. These have meant so much to everyone at FlySafair.

Flight operations will start on 15 June 2020, and we will be publishing flights for sale and our schedules early this week. We'll send out another email once all flights are available for sale.





  • You may only fly for business, and a permit declaring that your travel is for business reasons is required. More information on how to go about getting a permit is available here.

  • Flights are only allowed between Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

  • Strict safety protocols have to be adhered to during travel.

  • Due to safety screenings, travellers should plan for delays in accessing the terminal building. Please arrive well before your flight to avoid missed departures. 





Our customer contact center will open on Monday, 8 June 2020, and we’ll be ready to field any questions you have, including those about vouchers, refunds to cash, safety measures and flight availability. Our teams are excited about being able to assist you again.





We’ve been designing a safe travel experience for flights during the pandemic since before the lockdown even started. There are a number of measures that we’ve put in place that meet, and exceed, the legislated regulations. Click here to read more about the FlySafair Pledge which outlines the details of the measures we’re taking. But as a quick overview, you can expect the following:


  • Screening of all staff and passengers.

  • Compulsory wearing of masks throughout flight.

  • Self-scanning of documents, no catering and no magazines to avoid contact.

  • Sterile aircraft cabins, re-sterilised between flights.

  • Reduced passenger movement during flight.

  • Staggered boarding procedures.





Regulations have placed no limits on the capacity on an aircraft for the purposes of social distancing, thanks to sophisticated air filtration systems onboard and the combination of other protective measures we are implementing.

Research has indicated that blocking out middle seats doesn’t significantly improve protection against viral transmission. That said, we respect that many of our passengers would prefer the option of a blocked middle seat for their own peace of mind. As part of our ongoing promise of safety and innovation, customers may block the middle seat in their row when making reservations on our website for an additional fee to your booking. We are the only airline in South Africa that offers this facility.



Please keep an eye on your inbox and our social media channels over the coming days as we make further announcements about schedules and operations. More than ever before, we look forward to seeing you on board again soon.

From all of us at FlySafair
