DON’T STRESS THE CANCELLATION AND CHANGE FEES
Lift Airline, South Africa’s newest domestic airline which launched in December 2020 came into the market with the promise of flexible flying. That means with Lift you can change your flight as many times as you need. As long as you've made your changes 24 hours in advance, the airline won't charge you additional fees or penalties. This includes changing traveller names and other details at no charge.
You can also change your flight one hour before departure with an amendment fee of R250 per person. If the cost of your new ticket is higher you can simply pay the difference and if there is an excess cost you can add it into your Lift Wallet as credit to use another time.
FLY IN A CONSUMER-FOCUSED AIRPLANE
Lift is founded by Gidon Novick (Kulula.com founder and former Comair CEO) and Jonathan Ayache (ex-Uber executive), and describe the airline as “consumer-obsessed”.So obsessed, they let the public choose the name of their new airline in the country’s largest naming competition in September 2020. Over 25 000 entries came in, but people won. The eight winners shared the prize of a year's worth of free flights, and they got their names inscribed on the first Lift plane that took to the air on 10 December 2020.
