Fastjet launches operations with two routes from Dar es Salaam
Fastjet's Dar es Salaam to Kilimanjaro
Fastjet, the latest venture of Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the founder of easyJet, commenced operations on 29 November with two intra-Tanzanian routes. The carrier, which operates an all-A319 fleet, started flying from Dar es Salaam (DRS) to both Kilimanjaro (JRO), the self-styled gateway to Africa's wildlife heritage located in the north-east of the country, and Mwanza (MWZ) on the southern shores of Lake Victoria. Twice-daily departures are offered on each route, both of which face competition from Precision Air's respective 35 and 21 weekly frequencies.
