South African low-cost airline set to launch on December 10th,2020 at the start of the South African summer holiday season. It will operate on major domestic routes from O. R. Tambo International Airport to Cape Town International Airport and George Airport on the Garden Route and then later King Shaka International Airport. 


The name, LIFT Airline, was selected after the public were invited to name the airline in a social media campaign. Over 25,000 names were received with LIFT Airline being submitted by eight contestants all of whom agreed to share the main prize of free flights for a year. Their names will also be inscribed on the body of the first plane that takes to the air. The airline's new name was revealed on October 29, 2020.

The budget airline will kick off with three aircraft operating seven return flights a day between Cape Town, George, and Johannesburg. Lift will initially make use of Global Aviation’s aircraft, maintenance facilities, cabin crew, pilots, and its central flight control facility.

Africa's new airline intends to offer "flexible air travel", enabling customers to change bookings with no penalties. Cancellations by customers will be credited to their 'LIFT-Wallet' for use on future bookings.
