Fastjet affirms status as Tanzania’s leading airline


(Posted 18th June 2014)

Fastjet has just announced their monthly performance statistics for the month of May 2014 and reports a 20 percent rise in passenger numbers compared to April this year and a massive rise of over 77 percent compared with May 2013. The total passenger uplift of 43.020 passengers in May resulted in an overall loadfactor of 71 percent on the back of a capacity increase on three routes, namely Lusaka (27 percent), Mbeya (43 percent) and Mwanza (23 percent). Seats available compared to the same month in 2013 rose by 68 percent while revenues rose by 81 percent year by year. These figures also confirm that Fastjet remains Tanzania’s leading airline in terms of passengers carried on both domestic and regional routes.

Fastjet also finally put an end to including data from the inherited legacy operations of Fly 540, since operations in Angola and Ghana are now suspended pending restructuring and introducing a full scale LCC model in line with the Tanzanian operation compared to the previous hybrid operation conducted by Fly 540.
