Travelers can already start booking tickets for all four new routes as of 3 August 2023.

This growth trajectory is set to continue in 2023 as the airline plans to add more aircraft, routes, and frequencies.


The Johannesburg-Harare flights will operate daily, with ticket prices starting at an incredibly low R1’000. For travellers heading to Livingstone, FlySafair will offer four weekly flights on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, with tickets starting at R2’000. The following routes will take flight on 3 and 5 October 2023. Johannesburg to Victoria Falls will have three weekly flights, and tickets will begin at R1’400. On the other hand, Johannesburg to Maputo will operate four times a week, with ticket prices also starting at R1’400.

We are so pleased to finally be able to announce the addition of these routes and, more importantly, begin operations just in time for the festive season.

To accommodate this expansion, FlySafair has also been actively hiring new staff to ensure their award-winning customer service remains top-notch even with the increased operations. Kirby Gordon emphasized the airline’s commitment to maintaining its customer focus.

Despite our rapid growth, we have managed to maintain hassle-free travel and on-time performance as a priority. This is something our entire team is determined to continue as we navigate the new challenges that come with new routes.
