FlySafair on the GDS

FlySafair on the GDS

FlySafair fares are available everywhere in the world. We market under our own designator (FA) on Amadeus, Galileo and on Sabre. We are also available on other GDS platforms thanks to our e-alliance agreement with Hahn Air Systems where our inventory is marketed under the H1 code.

Within South Africa, we ticket on our own stock under the FA-640 code. In other territories our inventory is ticketed on HR-169 stock.

Ticketing Rules

Please ensure that you read our fare rules as published in the GDS in which you are booking. It’s also very important that agents familiarise themselves with our strict ADM policy. Specific practices for which ADMs will be issued include:

  • Downgrading
