Airlines offering cheap flights to South Africa


Getting to South Africa has never been easier. There are currently four low cost airlines that offer cheap flights to South Africa including, 1Time Airlines, Mango Airlines and Velvet Airlines. There are two other airlines that offer regular scheduled flights across the country in the business, commercial and first class sectors.

Low cost airlines fly to South Africa for specific destinations with the aim of making air travel affordable for each. These no-frills flights offer basic services without additional extras such as meals and free drinks on the fly, other than Velvet Sky Aviation offering complimentary drinks. Airlines, however; buy travel meals for passengers traveling on their planes, and with an average flight time of two hours, lack of meals is a small feature for most travelers.

The destination to which these airlines fly is limited to mass travel demand, and therefore not all airlines include smaller destinations such as Kimberley Airport or Upington Airport. These airports are only served by the South African National Airline and its subsidiaries SAA Express.

Smaller destinations such as George Airport, the starting point for many Garden Route visitors, Bloemfontein Airport in the Free State Province and East London in the Eastern Cape are served only by one or two budget airlines alongside South African Airlines.

Due to its proximity to the business center, the smaller Lansria Airport has become a popular alternative destination for Johannesburg and is served by and Mango Airlines for cheap flight options as well as South African Airlines.
