South African domestic flights provide an easy and efficient way to navigate the country and take in its prime visitor destinations and attractions. There are a number of carriers servicing the country, offering everything from business and economy class tickets to budget, no-frills seats.

South African domestic flights provide access to virtually every corner of the country. All major cities receive domestic flights in South Africa and there are dozens of smaller airfields that also accommodate charter flights.

South Africa domestic flights are relatively short and hassle-free, and can be booked online directly through the carriers or flight service providers from anywhere in the world.

South African domestic flights include the major routes between Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, flying to OR Tambo International Airport, Cape Town International Airport and Durban International Airport.
