I am getting ridiculously high prices for the flights between JNB and VFA for the end of May (>$600) from all search engines, e.g. Momondo to Expedia to Mobissimo. I can get inexpensive Livingstone flight (~$340), but I do not want to fly there because of required yellow fever immunization. Few days ago same places gave prices to VFA around $350 which is just fine, except at the time I didn't have the dates set so couldn't buy. Could it be that lower fares have been sold out that long in advance? Does anyone know the reason for this hike? Would working with SA or ZIM based travel agent help to bring costs back? If so, can someone recommend a reliable SA/ZIM TA?
Are there smaller airlines (other than Air Namibia, SA link and Comair) that fly into VFA?
