Bidvest Premier Lounge Access

At FlySafair, we understand the need for peace of mind and comfort while waiting for your flight at the airport. As such, we have partnered with Bidvest Premier Lounges to offer you the option of sitting back and relaxing in their airport lounges for FlySafair's domestic and international flights. Lounge access is granted 2 hours before a domestic flight's departure and 4 hours for an international flight. All South African airports we fly from have lounges.

How it works

Lounge access is booked online when purchasing your flight. After purchase, you will receive an email confirmation that the service was added. To gain access to the lounge, you will scan your boarding pass at the lounge reception. This service is valid only for the flight against which it was issued. So if you book a lounge visit for your departure flight, you will not be able to use it on your return flight if you don't get to the lounge before you leave. The lounge service is not refundable should you not get a chance to visit the lounge.

After checking in, proceed through the domestic airport security gates to the departure hall. All airports have clear signage directing you to the lounges. At the lounge reception, present your boarding pass and they will welcome you inside.

Boarding Calls

Please note that the lounges are not required to make boarding calls for lounge visitors, so it's the customer's own responsibility to ensure that you are at the boarding gates in time for boarding. Boarding for our flights closes 15min before departure.

Arriving Early

Airport lounge access is only available two hours before departure on domestic flights and four hours for international flights. Guests who arrive at the airport early are welcome to proceed to the lounges for early entry, but please note that the lounge will charge an early access fee dependent on how early you are.

Children and Infants

Children and infants are welcome into the Bidvest Premier Lounges. Children under the age of two years are allowed to enter for free when accompanying a parent with paid access. The service must be added seperately for children of age two years and older.

What's Available in the Lounges

All Bidvest Premier Lounges provide a comfortable space to sit and relax while waiting for your flight to depart. Complimentary snacks and beverages are provided by the lounge, with menus varying on a daily basis. There are also televisions, free newspapers and magazines as wellas charging facilities for laptops and cell phones.
