According to the press-release, this 'low cost' fare is one-way and no taxes included. Now that starts at about R4500 return. It isn't very low cost, as there are other carriers offering return airfares the same or maybe even cheaper, with the frills....

Well, the "lowest" price isn't really all that thrilling, but the "maximum" price of R4000 could be something interesting: prices to SA can sometimes go to ridiculous amounts, and seeing how booked the carriers on Europe-SA routes are, I'd say that the market can use another entrant.
But Civair? Admittedly, at least it's not a completely new airline, because they've been flying for quite some time (even if not on "low cost international services"), but are they really sure that they want to take on SA, BA, LH, AF, VS and others?
