Fastjet introduces daily flights to Dar

FASTJET, the low-cost pan- African airline, has introduced daily flights on its Lusaka to Dar es Salaam route in response to increasing passenger demand.
Airline chief commercial officer Richard Bodin said Fastjet, which services the Lusaka to Dar es Salaam route four times a week will introduce daily flights effective September 13.
“Fastjet will now offer daily flights on its route from Lusaka’s Kenneth Kaunda International Airport to Dar es Salaam’s Julius Nyerere International Airport, providing Zambians with increased and more convenient travel options at affordable fares. The expanded schedule will result in approximately 1,000 extra seats each week added to the Fastjet flights between the two cities,” he said.
This is contained in a statement issued by KPR Consulting yesterday.
Fastjet’s announcement of its new daily frequency to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania follows the airline’s announcement that it is in the final stages of its application to the Zambian Department of Civil Aviation and the Ministry of Transport for an Air Operating Certificate (AOC) for Fastjet Zambia, which once issued, will enable the airline to operate domestic flights in Zambia.
The airline also operates flights to Ndola and Livingstone.
“Fastjet Zambia also intends establishing international routes initially between Lusaka and Johannesburg in South Africa, Nairobi in Kenya, and Harare in Zimbabwe,” the statement reads.
