Airtime Airlines, a new LCC of South Africa, wants passengers to buy airtime minutes rather than tickets and then trade in their minutes for flights. Passengers will buy a cellphone starter pack with minutes.

Any more details? Is this a new concept?

That's good business for turboprop... longer flight time, more revenue  Smile Jokes apart, the business model is too complicated in my opinion to succeed...


Next flight: hopefully soon...

Thanks for posting. Never knew about this until I saw it on here. Didn't even come across it on any of the local aviation websites, although I might just have overlooked it.

Must agree, looks very complicated, even just for buying a ticket. I'll wait and see if this airline's first flight ever takes off.
