fastjet to keep Joburg-Dar costs low

Following the announcement that it had received its Foreign Operator Permit from the Department of Transport, fastjet is confident that sales for its Dar es Salaam to Johannesburg route will open soon.

Tourism Update reports that Ed Winter, CEO of fastjet said: "We expect this to be a particularly popular route, due to the fact that South African Airways has had a monopoly on this route for far too long. 

"We are very keen to offer substantially more affordable fares to customers and further stimulate the potential traffic between these two key African cities, which can only have a very positive effect on the critical trade, commercial and tourism industries between South Africa and Tanzania."

The budget airline has also committed to "substantially more affordable fares" for travel between South Africa and Tanzania, after receiving regulatory approval to operate services on the route last week.

Schedules are yet to be announced but Chief Executive Officer, Ed Winter, was optimistic demand would be strong, due to fastjet's promised deep-discount fares.
