fastjet adds extra flights on its new international route

fastjet, Africa’s low cost airline, is pleased to announce that it is increasing capacity on its recently launched Dar es Salaam to Lusaka (Zambia) route in response to strong demand from its customers.

From 15th April 2014, a Tuesday rotation will be added to the existing timetable, adding 50% more capacity on this popular route. Tickets for the additional flights will go on sale today. 

The route, which started operating on 1st February, has already seen very high load factors; the Lusaka to Dar es Salaam leg has been particularly popular with a number of flights having sold-out completely.

Commenting on the success of the route, Richard Bodin, Chief Commercial Officer of fastjet, said:

"We are thrilled with the response to the launch of our Dar es Salaam to Lusaka route. Our research suggested that this was going to be a successful route with high demand but initial passenger numbers and interest have  exceeded expectations. We expect to add still more capacity on this route – our target is to operate daily.

“Additionally, our plans to establish a base in Zambia are progressing well.  A company named “fastjet Zambia” is being incorporated and we have commenced the process of obtaining an Air Operating Certificate in Lusaka.”
