Fastjet January passenger figures up 78%

African budget airline Fastjet saw January carryings rise 78% year-on-year to a total of 55,695 passengers.

The load factor rose by nine percentage points to 69% while the on-time performance was 94%.

The airline’s rolling 12 month total of passengers carried to January was up by 68% to 621,656.

Interim chairman and chief executive Ed Winter 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.”

Fastjet launched its spring flying programme last week featuring a the new route between Kilimanjaro and Mwanza.
