The flight to Cape Town only takes a little over two hours so if you’re taking a flight at meal-times on FlySafair, rather have something to eat before you leave to save on at least one set of plastic containers and cutlery. Another eco-friendly thing you can do is check the type of aircraft on the various flights – they’re displayed alongside the other flight details and use Google if you need to identify the latest models as these have more fuel efficient engine technology than the older ones.
