Cape Town - Over in a flash...

Just as quickly as the 43.03 seconds flashed by when Wayde van Niekerk won gold and smashed a World Record at the Rio Olympics on Monday morning, FlySafair's R43.03 tickets honouring the athlete sold out too! 

Kirby Gordon, vice president for the airline's sales and distribution team told Traveller24 they managed to sell out all 400 tickets in 1 hour and 41 min.

"Not quite as good as Wayde’s record, but not too bad either," he quipped. 

As expected, frustration ran high with travellers trying to book the tickets on a very crowded online site.

Did you manage to get tickets?
