Fastjet Flights Postponed

Fastjet was set to launch flights from Johannesburg to Dar es Salaam, the capital of Tanzania today, and has been selling tickets for the route for the past few months on its website. However, Fastjet flights on the route have had to be postponed as a result of regulatory and administrative challenges.

Passengers who bought tickets for the route will be given a full refund by the airline, but the delay will inconvenience many travellers who had planned their holidays or business trips around specific dates. In addition to receiving a refund, passengers will be given a free flight on Fastjet, as well as assistance with re-booking.

The delays were occasioned by the Department of Transport requesting additional documentation from the airline during the licensing and regulatory process, which have not yet been processed by the Department of Transport.

When the route is finally operational, Fastjet flights will operate between Johannesburg and Dar es Salaam three days per week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
