The South African based low-cost airline has been granted rights to fly to Mauritius as it seeks to grab a market opportunity brought about by the pandemic.
The void left by struggling airlines and especially South African airways have created the perfect platform for Flysafair to expand into viable regional routes that are currently being underserved.
Mauritius is a renowned holiday destinatio
n and a popular travel choice out of South Africa. With Air Mauritius in business rescue, added connectivity and introduction of some capacity between OR Tambo and Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam international airport will indeed be welcome.
While the airline is looking to connect to more destinations in the sub-Saharan region, applications for rights to fly to Windhoek and Zanzibar have been denied.
Flights to Mauritius will start later in the year and in the meantime, Flysafair will complete its transition from domestic to an international airline.
