"The last couple of years have been challenging to say the least, but despite this, we have stayed committed to our goal of providing our passengers with an excellent service," says Kirby Gordon, chief marketing officer of FlySafair. “This is of course only possible with our amazing staff who have kept us on top of our game.”

Of the 14,343 FlySafair flights flown in 2021, 96.4% of these arrived on time. In addition to receiving the top award for the Middle East and Africa, FlySafair ranked fourth on the list of most on-time low-cost carriers globally.

"Cirium is delighted to recognize FlySafair as the most on-time airline in the Middle East and Africa for 2021. FlySafair has risen in the On-Time Performance rankings and operated its flights 96.44% on time in 2021," says Jeremy Bowen, CEO at Cirium.

"Until recently the carrier provided only domestic services, however, is now expanding its services internationally, for example launching its first international service to Mauritius. Congratulations to the FlySafair team."
