SA Express logo.jpg

South African Express was founded on the eve of the new democratic South Africa on 24 April 1994. The airline turns 21 this year and now operates a fleet of 24 aircraft. SA Express is a fast-growing airline operating primary and secondary hubs between domestic and regional destinations within Southern Africa.

Our objective of improving intra-Africa travel is aligned to the state’s airlift strategy aiming to increase aviation contribution towards sustainable economic growth and job creation. The flexibility and reliability presented by the airline’s FACT principle (Frequency, Availability, Competitive rate and Timing of flights) afford both the consumers and the service providers a unique and convenient service. The FACT principle is important, as it enhances the country’s prospect as a preferred air travel destination and major trade and tourism capital.

Our Purpose: An integrated, sustainable regional airline connecting secondary and main airports.

Our vision is supported by the aspirations and strategy of the airline. Also underpinning this vision is our set of core values and unique selling propositions that drive profitability.

We fly for you: This is the commitment we’ve made to our customers, and it is the essence of our brand. This means that we have a responsibility to all our stakeholders to fulfil our promise. It all starts with transparency. When we fly, we hope for clear blue skies and no turbulence, to ensure a comfortable, timeous journey. So it is true, when we are on the ground, transparency ensures that all our stakeholders are at ease and trust that the business is being run efficiently and ethically.

With this forecast, we are setting a clear path on the runway and hoping to break new ground. A clear vision ahead will set us on the right path as we embark on this new journey.

Turbulence will not get in the way and cloud our plans, as we aim to fly through unchartered skies in full flight. We’re making sure that from city to city and into Southern Africa, we fly for you.
