SKYWISE AIRLINES OFFERS FIRST-EVER “UNLIMITED FLYING”SUBSCRIPTION BETWEEN CAPE TOWN AND JOHANNESBURG
Imagine paying a subscription fee each month that enables you to fly as many times as you want between Johannesburg and Cape Town!
Now you can do exactly that with Skywise Airlines which – in a first for the airline industry in Africa – is offering frequent flyers a fee of just R7999 a month to fly as often as they want between the two cities.
The all-inclusive fee is part of the privately owned low-cost airline’s strategy that seeks to offer consumers a premium service.
Co-CEO of Skywise, Irfan Pardesi, says the package is ideal for corporate executives, government officials and business people who fly between Johannesburg and Cape Town at least two to three times a month. It also affords business people a time for personal relaxation over the weekends or during their out-of-office hours.
“There are no limits to the number of times you can fly. One can effectively compare this deal to joining a country club where, instead of having access to the golf course, you have unlimited access to our planes,” says Pardesi.
Skywise was launched in February and operates three Boeing 737 planes, undertaking eight daily and 52 weekly flights on the Johannesburg-Cape Town route.
Adds Pardesi, “Subscribers” will enjoy all the perks available to Skywise passengers. These include, but are not limited to, access to Priority Pass and Prestige Access, bags weighing up to 25kg that can be checked in for free, snacks from the menu at no extra charge, a Whatsapp check-in facility and a personal travel manager.
“That this is all available for a flat fee is unique and unprecedented for domestic travellers in this country. It is a model designed to attract frequent flyers who want to save time and avoid the hassle of searching for cheap travel. It also provides frequent flyers air travel that never ends. ”
Co-chairpersons, Tabassum Qadir and J. Malik, concludes that Skywise Airlines’ ultimate aim is to “connect people through a unique flying experience” while becoming South Africa’s “most-loved airline”.
“In terms of this unique offer, we are confident that unlimited flying enables travellers to challenge their own limitations every day”.
