FastJet welcomes passenger number 400.000


(Posted 19th December 2013)

FastJet yesterday reached a landmark figure when they welcomed their 400.000th passenger on board.

Since starting operations just over a year ago, with flights from Dar es Salaam to Kilimanjaro International and to Mwanza, their destinations have since grown to include Zanzibar as well as Mbeya on their domestic services within Tanzania and of late Johannesburg, their first international route. Lusaka / Zambia will follow from 01st February next year as the airline eyes further expansion in the wider Eastern African region. It is understood that Nairobi remains high on the airline’s wish list for new destinations as does Entebbe.

The airline uses Airbus A319 equipment and has only recently announced plans to recruit another 15 pilots in order to cater for an expanded operation in 2014 and beyond.

While no formal statement was released as yet by the airline, they used Twitter to announce their accomplishment as shown below:

Congratulations to FastJet and Happy Landings, always.
