South African low-cost carrier FlySafair is set to expand its regional network with the addition of new routes to Windhoek, Harare and Zanzibar.

The International Air Services Council has granted the airline permission to operate commercial flights to these three destinations, with schedules for Windhoek and Harare expected to be available by Q3 2023.

Meanwhile, FlySafair has also been given the green light to offer five additional flights to Mauritius, with the potential for daily flights to the island. The airline plans to add three new aircraft to its fleet by the end of March to accommodate the expansion.

FlySafair has grown to become the dominant player in South Africa’s domestic market, with a market share of 60%, up from around 25% pre-pandemic. The airline has been hiring new staff to prepare for the expansion, which is expected to make the new Windhoek and Harare routes available for the 2023 holiday season.

In the meantime, FlySafair will begin flying to Zanzibar sooner than expected thanks to an existing charter arrangement. The new routes will offer more options for travelers seeking affordable flights to popular destinations in the region.

FlySafair has already begun laying the groundwork for the expansion and is in discussions with civil aviation authorities and other parties to ensure a smooth launch. With additional flights to Mauritius also on the horizon, the airline is poised to solidify its position as a key player in the South African aviation market.
