KIGOMA TO BECOME FASTJET’S FIFTH DOMESTIC ROUTE IN #TANZANIA
(Posted 28th May 2018)
Fastjet has opened bookings, again, for Kigoma which is now set to become the airline’s fifth destination after Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Mwanza and Mbeya.
Shown as a destination several months ago already – and then taken off again reportedly due to civil aviation shenanigans – will the new destination connect yet another underserved part of Tanzania with affordable airfares, the secret of Fastjet’s success in the sprawling East African country.
It is expected that the new destination will be served with an ATR72-600 of which the airline has purchased three, the remaining two to be placed with other Fastjet companies in Africa. This aircraft type is already type approved in Tanzania so adding an ATR on the airline’s AOC should not give Fastjet unsurmountable challenges unless TCAA plays games again as has clearly been the case in January.
