FastJet to be based in Tanzania

Start-up low cost African airline FastJet, run by EasyJet founder Sir Stelios, has announced its base will be in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.

FastJet will begin flights in November and will take delivery of its first Airbus A319 aircraft on lease from BBAM next month. The airline is currently hiring crew and ground staff.

FastJet chief executive Ed Winter said: “Our initial focus will be on East Africa with the airline’s first base at Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, where the A319 aircraft has already been approved by the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority.

“This will be followed by a second base in Nairobi, Kenya, once the A319 is approved there. We look forward to bringing a great, reliable and affordable service to the people of East Africa.”
