FastJet prepares

The new African low-cost carrier Fastjet has unveiled its logo and livery, featuring the African Grey Parrot. (also see BTN 22 October)

The airline’s CEO, Ed Winters, said that the bird had been chosen as it is “renowned for its intelligence and is therefore a perfect personification of Fastjet’s motto: smart travel”.

“We hope that our friendly new mascot and logo will soon become universally recognised as symbols of reliability, efficiency and safety”, said Winters.

Its first operating base will be in the Tanzanian capital Dar es Salaam.  Fastjet will also set up in Nairobi (Kenya) once the A319 aircraft is approved for use from the little used Wilson Airport.  The airline now has three Airbus A319 aircraft in its fleet, which are currently being painted with the new livery before being flown to Tanzania for the launch. 

FastJet is preparing to imminently launch a new website, confirm initial schedules and start selling tickets.  Specific routes have not yet been confirmed, but it is understood the carrier will operate from bases in Kenya, Tanzania, Angola and Ghana.

Mr Winters is scheduled to be the guest speaker at the Aviation Club of the UK in Lonson on Thursday 6 June.  www.fastjet.com
