fastjet’s January 2015 passenger statistics

fastjet operations in Tanzania carried a total of 55,695 passengers in January 2015 and achieved a load factor of 69%.  This represents a 78% increase in the number of passengers carried and a 9% increase in load factor compared with the same month last year. On-Time Performance remained at 94%.

Commenting on the figures, Ed Winter, Interim Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of fastjet plc, said: “January is traditionally the month of the year when airlines see the lowest consumer demand. We are therefore very pleased with our trading figures as we build upon our market leading position in Tanzania. We have clearly demonstrated that our low-cost model is stimulating the market and encouraging more and more people to use our reliable and affordable flights rather than road transport.”

Year-on-year, the 78% increase in passengers carried in January is well ahead of the 53% increase in number of seats flown, producing a strong uplift in load factor.

fastjet launched its Spring flying programme last week featuring the commencement of the new route linking the two busiest destinations in the fastjet network (Kilimanjaro and Mwanza).
