South Africa Airways raises fares due to "increased expenses" over World Cup period

18-Mar-2010 2:00 PM

South African Airways stated it will incur additional expenses during the 2010 FIFA World Cup as it plans to operate 24 hours a day during the period and as a result, it would naturally have to increase its fares (Business Report, 17-Mar-2010). The carrier added only 20% of domestic fares include a 50% increase in Business and Economy fares for the period, and that it is not charging an “unfair premium”.
