South Africa's FlySafair is preparing to go international with the launch of regional Central and Southern African flights, reports ch-aviation.

Parent firm Safair has applied for rights to a 5x weekly Johannesburg O.R. Tambo-Entebbe/Kampala, Uganda, return service.

Safair chief executive Elmar Conradie said the application was only the "first step in a very lengthy process". Though Conradie declined to specify exact timeframes for the launch of flights abroad, it is presumed additional foreign route authorities will be applied for in future.
