Our Fares

We wanted to create an airline that would open the skies to many who had never flown before, while still offering a solid service. We structured our fares for flexibility and affordability, giving holiday goers and business people the option to customise their flight the way they want to fly and only pay for what they want or need.

Our Lite Fare is the cheapest fare that we offer, it affords you a seat on the aircraft and 7kgs of carry-on luggage. With this fare, you can customise your fare and build your own travel experience by adding on various other services, each at a small fee. It is perfect for business travellers.

The Standard Fare comes complete with 20kgs of checked-in luggage, priority boarding and two fee-free changes. All other extras can still be added to this fare to customise it further.

Lastly, the Premium Fare includes two checked bags of up to 23kg, and any other special equipment like musical instruments or sporting goods, unlimited fee-free flight changes, priority boarding, a pre-reserved seat and the ticket is fully refundable to a FlySafair wallet.

Base air fares are calculated using demand-based pricing

FlySafair, like other airlines around the world, uses a system called "demand-based pricing".

What this means is that the first seats on a flight, sell at the very lowest price, usually at a loss to the airline. As the seats start to sell out, they become incrementally more expensive.

What you'll find is that prices rise quickly on popular flights, like those around holiday times. Flights also tend to get pricier the closer it is to their departure time, because usually they'll be closer to sold out at that time.

The best way to get the lowest fare is to book in advance to ensure that you get those first cheap seats.

Here's a video that explains this in more detail:
