Dar to Nairobi is going to happen any day now. Kenyan base next year this was the plan anyway it looking very positive.
Dar to Nairobi and FJet Zambia
Thanks for the link DocTom. Frustrating but not surprising about Kenyan ASL. But, on the bright side, sounds like pressure is mounting for approval of Dar to Nairobi. This will be a cash cow for FastJet and no fund raising required to set this route up. Also, "Sources close to Fastjet have also confirmed that there is progress in setting up a new operation in Zambia though no date has yet been given when Fastjet Zambia may take to the skies." There will be funding requirement for FJet Zambia to be set up. If it looks likely that we will get the Nairobi route soon, then I hope they have a fourth aircraft sourced and in the pipeline.
Wolfgang: No Joy for Fastjet
New article on Wolfgang's blog: http://wolfganghthome.wordpress.com/2014/10/25/no-joy-for-fastjet-as-kenyas-caa-defers-application-for-an-air-service-license/
The article in The Star posted by Fastjrtcrazy is the first significantly positive reading since the application was submitted. http://www.the-star.co.ke/news/article-195150/mps-push-law-end-kenya-airways-monopoly-they-claim-kq-using-its-dominant I don't think it can be under emphasized the amount of influence that politicians can have on these decisions. This is not the only approval that I've been following for tha last few months, politics does seem to hinder or speed thes decisions dramatically. Look for instance at the U.S. DoT decision on Norwegian Air International, it's become very political with the DoT scared to make a decision. It doesn't have any solid grounds for denial but at the same time has been lobbied hard by senators who themselves have been lobbied by airlines and unions not to approve. The result is an incredibly long delay..... Let's hope that this will speed up the process and maybe a decision is imminent. From my experience, long delays result in approval as rejections can be fairly swift
So what going to halt the current epidemic the current epidemic will be the past epidemic by this time next year and the vaccine should stop any future epidemic sounds positive to me then again Im not suffering.
Gotta love a 'copy and paste' of a tiny part of the article that shows a positive - go read the whole article for a more balanced view. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-29756301 A spokesman from GlaxoSmithKline was interviewd last week on LBC radio, I very clearly remember him saying that a vaccine may well be produced for ebola but NOT in time to halt this current epidemic.
