Fastjet launches connecting flight service

Fastjet has launched a connecting flight service through its Tanzanian hub at Dar es Salaam’s Julius Nyerere International Airport. Passengers select where they are flying to and from on, and the airline’s reservations system will then search for the best connecting flights to their chosen destination. The passenger chooses their preferred connecting fastjet flight and completes their booking in one simple process. Previously, passengers had to make two separate bookings, incurring luggage charges and taxes for each booking, and then had to check in and collect their luggage twice. Fastjet passengers can now select multiple connecting flights and book them as a single trip. The connecting flights are booked together under a single ticket and single booking reference, and passengers will only need to pay for checked-in baggage once for both legs of their journey. Tax is only charged for the first flight of the outward-bound journey. Passengers should normally also be able to pick up both boarding passes when they check in for the first leg of their journey.
