A low-cost airline has just launched a flight subscription service in South Africa

 ·5 Oct 2021

Low-cost domestic airline Flysafair has launched a new monthly subscription service – ‘the FlyMore Club’.

Aimed at business travellers, people in long-distance relationships, commuters, people with holiday homes, and kids at boarding school, the service will allow customers to pay a set monthly fee for an allocation of flights.

The subscription will also include additional benefits such as special offers and preferential pricing, Flysafair said.

The FlyMore Club has initially launched with three pricing tiers, with options ranging between two and 10 flights a month over a 12-month period.

  • Two one-way flights, or one return flight free per month – R800
  • Six one-way or three return flights free per month –  R2,400
  • Ten one-way or five return flights free per month – R4,000

*These free flights exclude additional airport taxes.

The offering comes as more South Africans take to the skies, following the relaxing of travel restrictions in recent months.

FlySafair said that its FlyMore Club subscription gives you access to all domestic routes operated by the airline.

Any unused flight allocation in each month will expire and be forfeited, the group stressed, adding that FlyMore Club flights are intended for use by the main subscriber-only.

“You can cancel your subscription, and a penalty fee equal to the outstanding value of your subscription will be charged,” the group said.

“You have the option to either pre-select your seat when making your booking, for which you will be charged, or you can select your seat when checking in.”

In September, the low-cost carrier announced that it would soon launch its first international flights with a service to Mauritius.

The new direct route launches on 11 December 2021, and the twice-weekly service will operate out of OR Tambo International Airport every Tuesday and Saturday.
