Every year, hopeful travellers await FlySafair’s crazy (almost free) flight giveaway. In the past, the airline has sold flights for R1.
“Some might call us mad. Others may say we’re crazy. But no matter what your opinion is, we at FlySafair are happy to announce that our annual mega-sale is back. After a two-year break, the flash sale returns with some unbeatable savings,” it said in a statement.
This year, flights will be taking off for just R8! The 2022 theme has been dubbed “The Crazy R8 Sale”.
The catch? No one knows when the sale will start. The only way to secure your tickets is to, quite literally, hound the airline’s website. To get ahead of the pack, FlySafair suggests downloading its app on Google Play or on the Apple App Store.
Over the years, people have deemed the annual sale as a fluke or rumour. It’s real, people! In 2016, the airline sold 15 000 tickets for R2. The 2019 sale saw 45 000 tickets go for R5 each and Lash booked tickets to Cape Town for himself and his friend Lebo. They weren’t the only ones heading off to the Mother City. David hopped off to Stellenbosch for a glass of wine.
There’s not a lot that you can get for less than R10 these days – a litre of fuel is more than R20. But now, you could be flying for eight bucks.
