Cape Town - It is obvious that travellers and holidaymakers are wasting no time planning for their festive season, as FlySafair has recently announced an increase of flight frequencies on some of its routes, due to higher demand over this period.
The low-cost South African carrier announced that its Lanseria - George and Johannesburg - East London routes, which normally do not operate every day, will operate daily over the festive season.
"Due to the higher demand for travel over the festive season, we are adding capacity to our flight schedule over that period," says the airline.

Added to this, there will also be additional flights on the OR Tambo - George, OR Tambo-Cape Town, OR Tambo -Port Elizabeth, Cape Town- East London, Cape Town - PE, and Cape Town - Durban routes.
