Skywise officials said this progress was in keeping with the company’s “Less Is More” attitude, which means passengers have just one cost instead of having to go through a list of costs to get the total.
“It’s also in line with our saying “what you see, is what you get”, which affords our passengers to only pay the price they see.
“As a new airline there is need to keep transforming our services to be competitive. What a better way with this approach that addresses not just the issue of complex costs in the industry but also compliance”, says J. Malik and Tabassum Qadir, Skywise Co-Chairpersons.

“Channels have been making quite a lot of inquiries of late, particularly at the World Travel Market Africa 2015, hosted in Cape Town between 15 and 17 April.”
