Starting next week, 8 September 2023, FlySafair will once again connect the two largest cities in the Western Cape, Cape Town and George, with three flights per week planned.

Bookings have also already opened on all FlySafair’s platforms, reports Travel News, with fares starting from R930, one way (T&Cs apply). Flights will operate on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Kirby Gordon, Chief Marketing Officer at FlySafair, said that even though a lot of their recent expansion has been regional, the airline has still kept an eye on local expansion too.

“Having previously operated flights between the two cities, this route has been on our radar for some time. We are excited to now be able to bring our on-time performance and low-cost model back to those travelling between these two beautiful cities.” Gordon said.

“Although Cape Town is among the most common departure destinations for George, up until now options in terms of airline have been limited with only one other airline currently operating on this route,” Gordon added. “By adding additional capacity, customers will have more options, making travel to George and its neighbouring towns more convenient.”
