CAPE TOWN - FlySafair which had South Africans in a frenzy last week after selling 30 000 R4 tickets has this week launched a free-flights promotion for children under the age of 12 years old, during the June school vacation.
The free-flight for kids which will is running until May 25 allows individuals to book flights for kids up from June 1 until June 30th, reports Business Insider. This special promotion is in light of youth month this June, said Flysafair's head of sales and distribution, Kirby Gordon.
However, despite the claim that the flight is free for kids, certain conditions apply. Individuals are liable to pay airport taxes and checked luggage which can be approximately R127 a flight, said Gordon.
Meanwhile, the R4 flight deal that Flysafair ran last week which included all taxes and VAT was not well received by customers. Hours after FlySafair put up their R4 flight deal sale offering 30 000 customers the chance to to book flights, irate users have to taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the promotion, labelling it a "marketing scam".
The tickets were available from 9:00 am on Thursday but were sold out around 12:00 pm. Business Report participated in the flight deal but unfortunately we were left in the waiting room.
