Fastjet enhances product offering


Low-cost carrier fastjet has announced that it is including the first item of checked luggage, as well as a snack and/or refreshment, in all tickets sold.

Previously, fastjet charged all luggage and on-board snacks separately.

The move comes following several months of research into market trends and customer expectations, with the airline exchanging its BigSaver and Achiever fares for the new-look, value product.

Fastjet recently launched daily flights between Harare and Bulawayo in Zimbabwe, added an additional frequency between Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Harare on Wednesdays, and introduced double daily flights between Maputo and Beira in Mozambique.

The airline also has plans to launch additional routes in both Tanzania and Mozambique later in the year.
