The airline performed well across the ratings categories, scoring particularly high marks under Onboard Experience, Customer Service, Check-in & Boarding, Value for Money and Cleanliness. 

“Congratulations to FlySafair for being named a Travellers Choice Airlines winner yet again for the year 2019. This momentous award recognises FlySafair as Travellers’ favourite airline, based on review data from our community,” says Bryan Saltzburg, Senior Vice President and General Manager for TripAdvisor Flights. “As the airline industry introduces new fare products and a widening array of in-flight offerings, consumers continue to seek out the carriers that deliver value and a quality experience. The Travellers’ Choice awards for airlines recognises outstanding service, world-renowned quality and amazing value, all of which are traits currently exhibited by FlySafair.
