Amid all the struggles that our national airlines are facing these days, another new budget airline is said to launch in November. Fly Go-Air will be based in Lanseria and it’s planned to take its first flight on 26 November 2012.

Fly Go-Air will fly from Lanseria to George, Pietermaritzburg, Cape Town and Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. An article on Life is Savage states that the airline will also offer direct flights between Cape Town and Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, which will make Kruger regulars in Cape Town very happy.

You can already sign up for Fly Go-Air’s loyalty programme – click here if you’re interested. This entitles you to a free flight on your birthday (booked a month in advance) and a free flight for every six flights booked.

At the moment, the website is not very active, but according to a report on South Africa To, online bookings will open on 22 November this year. It’s yet unclear how much flights will cost or which aircrafts they’ll be using, but rumour has it that the Embraer 135 will be the craft of choice.

    This is excellent news with a loyalty card offering incentives that are useful to the traveller. Let’s hope it takes off! Low cost airlines are apparently the way of aviation future. SAA will be forced to up its game if it wants to remain a relevant airline.


    How could we possibly trust an airline that cannot even proof read thier adverts on the website? Will they perform pre-flight checks in the same way??????
    I quote: “VIP Card must be activated within 45 days of application, and for first flight must paid for and confirmed.” and
    “VIP Card holders will not liable for any payment or charge with regards to the free flight.”

    Are you sure this is not a scam?


    Oops! I can’t proof read either – lucky I am not running an airline! substitute “their” for “thier” please!!!
