FlySafair is to begin operations on 16 October, flying between Cape Town and Johannesburg.

The airline, which styles itself as "South Africa's first true low-cost carrier", will operate a daily service between Johannesburg and Cape Town using a Boeing 737-400. It will add a second route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth on 30 October.

FlySafair was granted a domestic flying licence in April, following the conclusion of a court case regarding its ownership.

The airline had planned to begin services in the fourth quarter of 2013 but was prevented from doing so by a court order in October of that year. This followed complaints from two rival carriers, which accused the airline of not meeting the required level of domestic ownership: 75%. The case was concluded in FlySafair's favour after the airline reformed its shareholding structure.
