Low-cost carrier FlySafair Airlines is at it again with another crazy sale. The special offer was launched in celebration of Hilton Langenhoven and Charl du Toit’s gold medals at the Paralympics.
As disclosed by reliable authorities, the Johannesburg-based airline is currently selling 100 seats for R7.07 and a further 100 seats for R11.54. The Fly period for this unique offer is from 12 to 16 September 2016.
Langenhoven, born an albino bounced back from track disappointment to grab South Africa’s second gold medal in the men’s long jump with his leap of 7,07 metres in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday.
He emerged victorious after he was earlier disqualified from the T12 400m semifinal for stepping outside of his lane.
On the other hand, Charl du Toit broke the world record in his T37 100m heat the same day. His victory came barely three months after his uncle Johan was shot in a house robbery. Johan later died just before Du Toit left for Rio.
Celebrating his victory, ambivalent Du Toit said: I wasn’t expecting it at all. I dedicate this one to my uncle. He was shot and killed, and he died last week; so I dedicate this to him. I’m just overwhelmed and completely grateful to his amazing race.”
