Fastjet expands African network  with Malawi route

A sixth international destination is being added by African low-cost carrier Fastjet from next month.

The airline is to start twice-weekly flights between its base in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi.

Tickets will go on sale today with flights due to start at an unspecified date in July.

Fastjet chief executive, Ed Winter, said: “Whilst we are directing much of our efforts to prepare for the planned launch of the Fastjet Zimbabwe and Zambia airlines, we continue to work hard on growing our Tanzanian network.

“This significant step links two thriving commercial centres and provides the population of both countries with an affordable and reliable air services.

“Our lowest international fare of $50, available to early bookers, is expected to ensure strong demand.

“The recent growth of Tanzanian domestic operations and this new route will increase our aircraft utilisation and further support the business case for an additional aircraft in the Tanzanian fleet.”
