I am not sure if Low cost carriers around the world adjust their taxes depending on the citizen. The Departure tax from LLW is $35 for international travelers, however for citizens of Malawi its around $3.
Also I am not sure if its a bug in the Fastjet website or because I am using the website from the United States. But every time you add an Infant, most routes don't have a tax on infants however the website seems to add $80 in departure taxes regardless of international or domestic flights. This is clearly a mistake.
Why would private investors bother attending. They voted through their fat cat salaries and generous share options without PIs. Tis a wonderful side to be on if its the right one!!! Kenya - still waiting four years on to get in there! Nothing has changed there.
Did any of the Regular BB members attend the AGM to give us an update as to what was said in reply to any questions ? Will we find out about the KCAA meeting yesterday in the public domain before the weekend ?
Kenya Airways’ long standing service to the Malawian travelling public, offering a 5th freedom connection between Malawi and Zambia, was clearly worth little for the bureaucrats in Lilongwe, when they abruptly cancelled these 5th freedom rights to give upstart Malawian Airlines the monopoly on the route, with instant suggestions this was done at the behest of Ethiopian Airlines. Ethiopian, which went into partnership with the Malawian government to relaunch a national airline after mismanaged Air Malawi had collapsed, at the time prompting desperate calls for assistance to Kenya Airways to offer a daily service to Lusaka, is thought to be the main driver behind that decision in their fight for supremacy in the African skies, in this case clearly a dirty fight as it now allows to charge fares at will to the detriment of passengers. ‘It is once again clear that the Yamoussoukro agreement is really worth little as African countries continue to disregard it with impunity’ commented an aviation source from Nairobi, when confirming that indeed effective today, 01st of March, no more flights between Malawi and Zambia will be operated by Kenya’s national airline.
*I* don't I'm afraid, other than making a considered guess. But there are others on this Board who might've kept track of the way these sort if meetings go and have a better idea. For me, I just go on waiting for so many things that are going to happen "soon"! There are so many in the pipeline now that, surely, one or more will come to fruition, erm - soon.
