The dual partnership combines both the H1-Air product and an HR-169 interline agreement. With HR-169, FlySafair will be available in the GDSs Amadeus and Galileo under their own designator FA and can be issued by travel agents on the HR-169 ticket. With H1-Air, FlySafair is already available in all major GDSs worldwide under the reservation code H1 and can also be ticketed on HR-169 ticket stock.

FlySafair is a low-cost airline based at Oliver Reginald Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg, South Africa. The airline is part of a 51-year old specialized aviation services company, Safair Operations, and serves seven domestic destinations with a fleet of nine Boeing 737 aircraft. FlySafair’s GDS inventory includes a 23kg checked-in baggage allowance, free priority boarding and two flight changes without penalty fees, although fare differences will be applicable. Ticketing time limits vary by fare class from a few hours to 48 hours.
