A new low-cost airline will soon be whisking South Africans from Cape Town and Durban to London’s Stansted airport.
The airline, to be named Redair, is the brainchild of airline entrepreneur Andy Cluver, who runs local charter company Civair.
Redair has been granted air traffic rights to fly five weekly round-trip flights from Cape Town or Durban to London. There are also hopes that four slots currently not being used by South African Airways will be made available. London’s Telegraph newspaper also reports that the airline will offer services between Cape Town and Barcelona and Malaga.
