FlySafair lands in Mauritius, to operate twice weekly flights

South African low-cost carrier FlySafair’s inaugural flight from Johannesburg to Mauritius landed on 8 March 2022.

Initially set to begin operating on 11 December 2021, the opening of FlySafair’s route to Mauritius was delayed following South African scientists’ discovery of the omicron variant.

According to MyBroadBand platform, FlySafair’s twice-weekly service to Mauritius will operate out of OR Tambo International Airport twice-weekly.

On Tuesdays and Saturdays, FA850 departs OR Tambo at 09h00 and arrives in Mauritius at 15h15. On return, FA851 departs at 16h15 and lands at 18h30 in Johannesburg.

Airfares on the new route reportedly start from R3,950 (Rs11,200).

“We couldn’t be more thrilled about landing in Mauritius for the first time,” FlySafair CEO Elmar Conradie was quoted as saying in MyBroadBand.

“This is a significant moment for us as an airline as we’ve patiently waited to get our first regional service underway.”

Conradie said the decision to introduce a regional service between Johannesburg and Mauritius was carefully considered when they were looking at FlySafair’s growth plan.
