In Flight Magazine - - IN THIS ISSUE - July Diary

Hello, and wel­come aboard this FlySafair flight. I’m so glad that you are giv­ing us the op­por­tu­nity to share our pas­sion for fly­ing with you.

Ear­lier this year we an­nounced that we’d been ranked the Best Air­line in Africa and the In­dian Ocean in the 2018TripAd­vi­sorTrav­ellers’ Choice awards, along with re­ceiv­ing the Best Econ­omy Class award for the same re­gion.This is some­thing I’m very proud of, es­pe­cially as this award is a re­flec­tion of what our pas­sen­gers feel about us.

The awards, which high­light the world’s top car­ri­ers, are based on the quan­tity and qual­ity of re­views and rat­ings for air­lines world­wide gath­ered over a 12-month pe­riod. FlySafair scored high re­view rat­ings across all cat­e­gories, and scored par­tic­u­larly high marks un­der “Value for Money” and “Clean­li­ness”.

In hon­our of this re­cent ac­co­lade, one of our air­craft, ZS-OAF, is sport­ing a brand-new liv­ery. The new liv­ery car­ries the TripAd­vi­sor Trav­ellers’ Choice badge on its flanks, and the nose has been dec­o­rated with hearts.

This air­craft is one of five air­craft that have com­mem­o­ra­tive liv­er­ies. The other four are: ZS-OAG with liv­ery to cel­e­brate our part­ner­ship with First Car Rental; and ZS-SJR, ZS-SJU and ZS-JRK, in hon­our of our spon­sor­ship of the Spring­boks.

Keep an eye out for these spe­cial air­craft, and, if you see any of them and hap­pen to take a photo, please feel free to share them on our Face­book page.

I can hardly be­lieve that 2018 is al­ready half gone, and that sum­mer is fast ap­proach­ing. I would like to re­mind you that sum­mer, es­pe­cially De­cem­ber, is a peak trav­el­ing pe­riod and that seats tend to sell out fast.

Wait­ing to make a book­ing al­ways works against cus­tomers. Not only do flights sell out, but ticket prices tend to rise quickly due to the higher de­mand dur­ing these pe­ri­ods. If you are al­ready busy plan­ning your De­cem­ber hol­i­day, I urge you to book your hol­i­day flights as soon as pos­si­ble in or­der to se­cure the best fares.

As ever, if you have any com­ments or sug­ges­tions, we’d love to hear them, so please pop an email to feed­ We reg­u­larly comb this re­source for guid­ance on where we can im­prove our ser­vice to achieve even greater suc­cess.

Safe trav­els – and we look for­ward to see­ing you again soon! El­mar Con­radie
