Airport: FACT to FAOR
*Good day fellow pilots.
We at SAVA are celebrating our 1 year anniversary.
We’d like to invite all pilots to join us with our celebration flight from Cape Town (FACT) to the operating hub Johannesburg (FAOR). With so many other airlines flying from FAOR its the perfect opportunity to fly from FAOR to your home town or your VA’s hub after we’ve landed.
It’s been a tough year for the VA. Most VA’s don’t survive the first year in IF but we have. What makes us even more special is that we are the only African VA in the entire Infinite Flight world.
Come and celebrate our anniversary with us as we take Africa to the world and bring the world to Africa!
