Fastjet postpones first international route

Fastjet has been forced to postpone its first international route due to administrative delays. The new African low-cost carrier was due to commence its Dar es Salaam to Johannesburg service on Friday.

But the inaugural flight had to be temporarily postponed due to “the South African Department of Transport making a very late request for additional documentation”.

Fastjet said in a statement: “This postponement is due to unexpected administrative delays caused by the South African Department of Transport which this week made a very late request for additional documentation.

“Although Fastjet delivered these documents without delay, the South African Department of Transport has said it will take several days to process these documents, thus delaying the start of Fastjet flights on this international route.”
