FlySafair has written a proposal to optimise Public Holidays. The idea is to mark the historical date as a day of observance but to have a corresponding Business Holiday on the nearest Friday or Monday. This will eradicate disruptive mid-week holidays and increase the number of long weekends each year which will serve to stimulate local tourism.
You can get involved by signing the petition in support of this idea. This will be submitted as an indication of public support along with support from industry bodies in our process to petition parliament for these changes.
