New low-cost airline for Lanseria airport


Low-cost carrier FlySafair has begun operating flights from northern Johannesburg’s Lanseria International Airport from 1 August 2016.

With the inclusion of Lanseria, the airline now operates at seven local airports – and estimates that its share of weekly seat capacity among local low-cost carriers now equates to approximately 28%.

FlySafair will offer flights from Lanseria International Airport to Cape Town and George. Cape Town flights will commence 1 August and depart and return twice daily and George flights will depart and return on Fridays and Sundays starting 5 August.

From 30 October the Cape Town schedule will increase to 3 flights daily.

FlySafair’s new Lanseria flights will not come at the expense of any other flights on its schedule. The carrier confirmed that it is acquiring additional aircraft to cover this flying schedule bringing its fleet to a total of nine Boeing 737s, from seven previously.

Lanseria Fares likely to drop

According to FlySafair, to date Lanseria International Airport has been something of a safe haven for the industry where consumers have generally been charged a premium for the convenience of flying in and out of this airport.

Kirby Gordon, VP of sales & distribution at FlySafair said that there’s no significant cost difference between operating from Lanseria versus OR Tambo.

“Higher fares from Lanseria are largely a product of supply and demand, so we’re likely to see a drop in fares due to the fact that we’ll be making more seats available on these routes.”
