What we love about flying with 1time is their ample leg-room, so we were delighted to hear that they're now offering a premium seating option "for those who just love to lounge".

Cruise news: Our main challenge is to get people to cruise once, as most people can't wait to hop on a ship again, once they've been.

1time Premium Seating

On each flight there's a limited number of pre-booked premium seats available per flight. As a lover of legroom, I can't wait for my next 1time flight to "testfly" it (they're emergency exit seats).

1Time Airline


Spend a night at the Kingsriver Estate near Robertson, from R899/couple (includes 2 meals). It's also near the Robertson Wine Route, giving you a chance to quaff the local produce.

London flight prices
Hopefully we'll be back to exploring London's magical streets soon! South Africa is currently on the UK's Red List, which means only British nationals are allowed to travel from South Africa to the UK and then they have to complete 10 days quarantine in a hotel. There are no direct flights connecting South Africa to the UK currently.

All 6 of Mango's planes have now been fitted with WiFi, and they're celebrating by offering connectivity on flights at R2-for-a-week’s access and R1-for-a-day pass during October 2012.

The Purple shall rule! Here's a blog entry which may surprise Capetonians with one of its lessor-known spots - Tranquility Cracks. "The crack went about 20 metres in and then a corridor to the left and a bit further down another corridor to the right. It was time to explore! We wandered through the maze of Cracks, a labyrinth of natural corridors with mossy Yellowwoods reaching up to the strip of sky above, reaching for the sun high above. It was like a giant, natural playground, bringing back fond memories of my childhood, full of rocks to climb, crevasses to shimmy up, tunnels to crawl through, and wonders to behold!"

The Bottom Line: "At the inception of the Airlift Strategy of 2006, there was an estimate of twenty airlines operating in South Africa. Since then, the number has grown to fifty airlines in July 2011. We are currently working with the Department of Transport and other partners to review the 2006 Airlift Strategy, which we will be taking back to Cabinet soon." Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk at the World Tourism Business Day Breakfast
