JOHANNESBURG – SKYWISE Airline, South Africa’s newest low-cost operator, said it was charging low fares in recognition of Human Rights Day.

The carrier is currently offering a “no-hidden” cost fare of R499 for passengers flying this Saturday, between Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Skywise is making history by identifying with human rights; an issue that symbolizes true democracy in a constitutionally bound South Africa, officials said.

“As the executive of Skywise, we believe in this big event in South African aviation history.

“What we are doing has not been done before,” Skywise Chief Executive Officer, Johan Borstlap, said.

The company said it was the first ever airline to contribute towards the issue of human rights in South Africa.

“For us people come first, regardless of their low or high status and we promise to do more for all South Africans” said the company.

Human Rights Day is celebrated yearly on March 21.
