Cape Town - Amidst continued speculation in the SA aviation industry about the Comair acquisition deal underway, low-cost airline FlySafair has vehemently denied that it is for sale.

Kirby Gordon, FlySafair's vice president of sales and distribution, told Fin24 on Wednesday that, although the Comair announcement sounds very exciting, he can emphatically state that such a deal does not involve FlySafair.

"There has been a lot of speculation about whether it might be us involved in the deal and we just wanted to clear that up. We are unequivocally not for sale at this stage. In fact, we’re looking to buy in order to expand," Gordon told Fin24.
