According to news24, low-cost carrier fastjet has extended its anticipated launch date in South Africa to July, from the original proposed date of 31 May. According to Business Day Live, ticket sales for the British-based airline were set to get under way on 16 May, but a glitch in the website apparently scuppered the process.
The low-cost carrier launched in Tanzania last year and has its sights set on offering a pan-African low-cost flight option. Fastjet has entered the market on Federal Air’s licence, which allows the latter to fly internationally and use large aircraft, including the 737 that fastjet has in mind.
