Johannesburg - South Africa's latest low cost airline, FlySafair, has started selling tickets despite a competitor threatening court action against it, Beeld reported on Tuesday.
The airline started selling tickets online on Monday, with a one-way ticket from Johannesburg to Cape Town costing R798.
Executive head Dave Andrew said it planned to have ten flights per day between the two cities when it started operating on October 17.
But competitor Comair and other parties have indicated they want to secure an interdict against FlySafair, apparently because it does not meet all the required regulations to operate.
FlySafair, however, said it was confident its flights would go ahead.
