MIAMI – South African aviation enthusiasts and travelers are celebrating the launch earlier today of the country’s newest airline. LIFT Airline (GE) flew its inaugural flights between Johannesburg and Cape Town (with one flight flying each way) using two of its fleet of three Airbus A320-231 aircraft.
LIFT Airline is a start-up South African low-cost airline that will operate on major domestic routes from O. R. Tambo.
