Skywise made use of two Boeing 737 during its operational flights from Johannesburg to Cape Town and vice versa. The fact that that range of Boeing’s was chosen was due to its affordable capital cost and above average fuel efficiency.

Due to the fact that all flights via Skywise have been suspended, there are no available flight tickets that can be purchased.
