In 2009, Rian Bornman of Venues4Africa.com joined forces with Wally Gaynor of Club Travel to start FlightSite.co.za.
FlightSite provides an innovative travel portal for South Africans to make local and worldwide travel arrangements. We constantly strive to improve our customers’ experiences by using cutting edge travel technologies. We offer our customers the best value for money and the widest choice of flights, car and accommodation available locally and abroad.
Flight Site’s vision is to become South Africa’s first truly Online Travel Agency. Wally and Rian share a passion for travel and wanted to bring South Africans an easier way of making travel arrangements. With broad band becoming a reality in many South African households, the convenience of booking flights, car hire and accommodation in one portal was the next step in travel. Fully IATA licensed, FlightSite.co.za has experienced call centre agents who know travel and are able to assist.
Because of our close ties with Club Travel, we have access to bulk buying power. This enables us to negotiate competitive airfares and preferential rates with airlines and other suppliers, such as hotels, car hire and cruise companies, tour operators, travel insurance and foreign exchange providers – worldwide.
Club Travel, a Level One Contributor, is owned by Thebe Tourism Group, the first black empowerment group formed in South Africa.
Since 2009 FlightSite has acquired many ‘white labels’, including, but not limited to Pick n Pay Travel, MySchool Travel, Travel Latitude, Sho’t Left Tourism and most recently Mweb Travel. These labels continue to grow as companies realize that their travel needs will be professionally managed by us.
