Every year, for the past four years, low-cost airline FlySafair has sold airline tickets for just a few rands, including airport taxes. The fifth of these annual FlySafair sales will commence tomorrow(May 7) at 9 am, where the airline will be selling 45 000 tickets on flights departing up until the end of September for just R5.
According to their press release, this year’s sale is bigger and better than ever before.
Kirby Gordon, Head of Sales and Distribution, said they have decided to up the number of R5 seats from 30 000 to 45 000.
“We’re especially grateful for all the support FlySafair has received from its customers,”he said.
Learning from the first year’s website issues, FlySafair implemented what it calls a “Waiting Room” to manage the influx of website visitors. This is effectively a holding area that allows a random selection of users onto the site every five minutes in order to avoid the website from crashing.
