We fly for you

SA Express Airways prides itself on aiming to offer incomparable service standards. In addition to building on our motto to express excellence and consistently striving to provide the best service, we know that“you” is the most important word in our airline.

With our consistent and seamless service, our customers can be assured of stellar customer service that will exceed their expectations.

The airline’s onboard service is unique and offers passengers a variety of meals or snacks on all flights. The airline pioneered its unique meal box concept and meal choices are frequently updated and designed using balanced food criteria – appearance, taste and nutritional value. Passengers can also enjoy a wine and malt service on specified flights as well as refreshments on all flights. Our customers can expect a comfortable, quality air travel experience, with the added benefits of frequency, reliability, on-time departures and unmatched value for money.
