25 October 2022, Johannesburg – Low-cost carrier FlySafair won top honours at this year’s World Luxury Travel Awards for Best Budget Airline in Africa and Best Cabin Crew in Africa. Since its launch in 2019, the World Luxury Travel Awards aims to recognise stakeholders in the travel industry for their high levels of service. Guests, travellers, and industry players voted over four weeks for their favourite travel establishments across 150 categories.
“It’s encouraging to receive this high praise as we prepare for the upcoming holiday season,” says Kirby Gordon, Chief Marketing Officer at FlySafair. “We have always taken a great deal of pride in providing our customers with a hassle-free travel experience. From the moment they search for their flight all the way through to stepping off the aircraft at their next destination, we do everything to make sure it’s as seamless as possible.”
Just last month, FlySafair received a nod from Skytrax for Best Low-Cost Airline in Africa at the World Airline Awards, while earlier this year it was recognised as the most on-time airline in the Middle East and Africa at the Cirium On-Time Performance Review.
“We know the local airline industry has hit some turbulent spots this year and we’re doing all that we can to address the shortfall in capacity with more aircraft joining our schedule in the coming months.”
In addition to new aircraft, FlySafair is preparing to expand its flight network to 11 new destinations in Southern Africa. It launched its first regional flights to Mauritius in March and has been granted the rights to fly to Bulawayo, Gaborone, Livingstone, Luanda, Lusaka, Maputo, Nairobi, the Seychelles, Victoria Falls and Windhoek.
“As we continue to grow our business, we will always prioritise our seamless service and ensure that our passengers are satisfied.”
