(Posted 31st May 2016)

As an initiative to boost even more Africans flying, Fastjet earlier today announced that any passengers purchasing tickets on Tuesday, 31st May 2016 will be entered into the first ever Fastjet Big 10 Lottery to win 10 free return flights on any Fastjet route on the airline’s African network.

Scooping the lottery for the 10 return flights will give the winning passenger the power to go on a dream holiday or a once-in-a-lifetime shopping trip with friends and family that they have always dreamed of.

For African entrepreneurs travelling the flights could be used to give their business the boost it needs by saving on travel costs for the next 10 times they need to travel.

Very simply, Fastjet’s goal is to make it possible for more Africans to fly across the continent, whether it be for business, visits to their friends and family, or enjoying leisure travel‘ said Richard Bodin, Chief Operating Officer at Fastjet.

Qualifying routes include all flights on its domestic routes connecting Dar es Salaam, Mwanza, Kilimanjaro, Mbeya and Zanzibar in Tanzania, and its international routes to Johannesburg in South Africa, Lusaka in Zambia, Harare and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Entebbe in Uganda and Nairobi in Kenya.

Flights purchased on Tuesday, 31 May 2016 for all domestic and international routes will qualify passengers for entries into the Big 10 Lottery. Winners will be announced in June and the 10 free flights must be used before 11th December 2016.

Recognised as Africa’s Leading Low-Cost Airline, fastjet now connects 11 African destinations for business people, tourists and families who have welcomed its low fares and the convenience of air travel.

Air travel is the key to the continued stimulation and growth of a country’s economy by making it easier for families, business people, and tourists to travel. We are launching these discounted flights so that even more Africans can experience the convenience of air travel, whether they are traveling for business or leisure‘ added Richard Bodin.
