FastJet To Soon Launch African Routes
Boy these guys are fast..$100 to SA coming up.
Fastjet, the African budget airline, has been granted permission to launch international flights from its hub in Tanzania.
The company, which is backed by Easyjet founder Stelios Haji-Ioannou, will fly to South Africa, Zambia and Rwanda.
It received route approvals from the relevant governments under Bilateral Air Services Agreements (BASAs).
Fastjet also said it was putting its plans to launch a domestic service in South Africa on hold.
The company is hoping to offer early bookers flights between Johannesburg and Dar es Salaam for around $100 (£64), one-way, excluding government taxes and charges.
