THE best budget airline. Plane on time and boarding easy. Staff smart, friendly and very efficient. Interior very clean and tidy with a comfortable seat and plenty of leg room. Top of my list for domestic flights in SA.

This is the best domestic airline. They have easy processes, and are always on Time. The times I've have to book other domestic airlines (because of non- availabilty at Flysafair) I have always experienced delays, especially with Cape Town. hahaha
