South African low-cost airline FlySafair has a good heart.
The airline has scheduled extra flights into Durban to help transport supplies to violence-stricken KwaZulu-Natal. This includes essentials like food, medical provisions and yeast to secure bread supplies the airline said.
Speaking to Talk Radio 702’s Bruce Whitfield, the airline’s CEO Elmar Conradie said, the decision was also made to help people who want to leave the city, where residents are reported to be running out of food.
“By Tuesday we were inundated with requests – at first, just people who wanted to get out of Durban. So we started having additional flights which we normally wouldn’t do at such short notice,” adds Elmar Conradie, CEO – FlySafair.
Talking to 702’s Bruce Whitfield, the airline promised to add around 38 flights out of Durban, not only to Joburg and Cape Town but also to Gqeberha and East London says Conradie.
